Abstract

The role of exercise in health is well known; here we discuss the specific role of exercise in vaccination responses. Chronic exercise or high levels of physical activity have been shown to be related to improved vaccination responses in older adults, illustrating improved immune function, and conferring potentially significant public health benefit. Acute exercise has recently been examined as a potential adjuvant to vaccination; its promise for clinical use warrants further investigation, given current data.
