CDC 2017 Vaccine Schedule for Adults
How Many Vaccines Are
Recommended By The CDC For Adults?
If you start the CDC recommended vaccination schedule for adults at age 19 and continue until you are 80 years old, you would have received 91 doses of various vaccines. The list is as follows:
61 Flu shots- 1 each year
7 Td/dpt- Tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis vaccination
3 MMR- Measles, mumps, and rubella vaccination
2 Varicella vaccination- virus
1 HZV- Herpes zoster vaccination
3 HPV- Human papillomavirus vaccination- both female & males
1 PVC13- Pneumococcal vaccination
3 HepA- Hepatitis A vaccination
3 Hep B- Hepatitis B vaccination
1+ MenACWY/MPSV4- Meningococcal vaccination
3 Men B- Meningococcal vaccination
3 Hib- Haemophilus influenzae type b vaccination
YES! NINTY-ONE VACCINES!
Don't like the thought of all those injections, doctors appointments, side effects and paying for it too? There MAY be a reason for you to excuse yourself, at least for a few specific vaccines.
Example... There are some people that may fit into a category where certain vaccines are not recommended. One category (CDC instructions) is if you have met the following combined conditions- you have a chronic illness AND are over 60 years old AND you are pregnant*.
If that describes you, then you are in luck! You may be able to get out of at least one vaccine!
[*CDC- Adults aged 60 years or older with chronic medical conditions may receive "x" vaccine unless they have a medical contraindication, e.g., pregnancy or severe immunodeficiency.]
Another CDC notation- When indicated, administer recommended vaccines to adults whose vaccination history is incomplete or unknown.
Do Your Own Research- Check the CDC's chart out for yourself. And to make you happier about this vaccine plan designed especially for you- it's in color! How special...

Information On Children's Vaccines
How Many Vaccines Are Recommended By The CDC For Children?
The charts and information provided by the CDC can be very confusing for parents, those getting the vaccines and those administering the vaccines. It appears a minimum of 60 doses should given to children from birth through age 18.
Children's Vaccine Charts- Notice There Are Several Charts To Consider
Once given the SIXTY PLUS CDC RECOMMENDED VACCINES, grown children have another NINETY-ONE to look forward to once they become an adult (19 years old).
