Immunizations for Adults


Adults also need immunizations. The type of immunizations recommended depends on geographic location, age, lifestyle, and conditions that may place you at higher risk for contracting certain diseases. For recommendations see:

Do you need travel immunizations?
Teller County Public Health and Environment has limited travel immunizations like Hep A, Hep B, polio, tetanus and measles/mumps/rubella.
We do not offer malaria or yellow fever immunizations.
