Injections

Many adults figure that since they had shots as children, they do not need them as an adult. This may be one reason why hundreds of thousands of needless deaths occur each year. However, there are a number of shots for seniors that can help prevent serious diseases and even premature death. Some of these shots (immunizations) that are strongly recommended in older adults include shots for:

  • Flu
  • Pneumonia
  • Chickenpox
  • Shingles
  • Tetanus-diphtheria
  • Hepatitis B

An annual flu shot is recommended for people who are 50 or older. Flu — the short name for influenza — is a highly contagious infection. Flu symptoms include:

  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Dry cough
  • Sore throat
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Headache
  • Muscle aches
  • Extreme fatigue
