#WellnessWednesday: Vaccines

Staying in good condition is a priority for all of us, which is why it’s important to protect and maintain your health by keeping up-to-date on vaccines. They are recommended for all adults, including truck drivers, to help prevent getting diseases. Even if you were vaccinated when you were younger, getting vaccinated can greatly stimulate your immune system and prepare you for the long haul!

Let’s take a look at some vaccines that can help adults like yourself stay healthy while on the road:

  • Flu (Influenza) Vaccine
  • TD (Tetanus and Diphtheria) Vaccine
  • Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis) Vaccine
  • Pneumococcal Vaccine
  • Meningococcal Vaccine
  • Hepatitis A Vaccine
  • Hepatitis B Vaccine
  • Chickenpox (Varicella) Vaccine
  • Shingles (Zoster) Vaccine

For instance, if you happen to have asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), or other conditions that may affect your lungs, then the flu and pneumococcal vaccines are for you. As an adult, the time is now to get a fresh start and keep tabs on your immunization history.

Before getting any shots, make sure the vaccine is right for you. Speak with your doctor or visit this helpful site with more information:
