Shots- or immunizations- are not just for children! Adults also need to be vaccinated from time to time to protect themselves against serious infectious diseases. Many people think diseases like diphtheria, mumps and measles have been wiped out. This is not the case. Every year thousands of people die needlessly. Vaccines save lives!
