Vaccines are important for people of all ages. While most people are aware that babies need to be vaccinated and children need booster shots, senior citizens can get left behind. Due to various health concerns and immune system deficiencies, it is crucial that elderly people get vaccinations.
Types of Vaccines for Seniors
There are many vaccines available for seniors, but the recommended immunizations will vary based on the patient’s age, lifestyle, and medical history. One of the most common vaccines recommended for seniors is a flu shot. While the flu is a common occurrence for many people, it can be deadly for seniors, who often have compromised immune systems. Tetanus, Hepatitis A and B, measles, mumps, and rubella are also vaccines that seniors should consider if they have not been vaccinated already.
C. Diff Vaccine Study
C. Diff is a serious health problem that can have devastating consequences for seniors. If you are over 60 years old, you might be at risk for C. Diff. We are currently recruiting seniors for a C. Diff vaccine study. In our study, you will receive a C. Diff vaccine at no cost to you and may be entitled to additional reimbursement for time and travel.
