Abstract

Immunization has effectively decreased the burden of disease on society. Nevertheless, over 50,000 deaths occur annually in the United States from vaccine-preventable disease, and nearly all of these occur in adults. It is essential for primary care physicians to be knowledgeable about the unique immunization-related needs of adults and to be aware of the factors that determine the need for vaccination.
