BASIC VACCINATION

 

Booster shots (adolescents and adults)

Vaccines administered during childhood can become less effective. Booster shots are therefore required in adolescents and adults as they increase the effectiveness of the vaccines received during childhood.

  • Diphtheria, whooping cough (pertussis), tetanus at ages 14 to16
  • Diphtheria and tetanus (every ten years) and at age 50
  • Influenza (each year beginning at age 60 and in special cases)

Update of immunization record

  • Immigration

Screening for tuberculosis


Advice

Even if you don’t feel well, if you have a cold (accompanied by fever or not), there is no reason you should not get vaccinated. Even if you’re taking antibiotics, you can receive most vaccines. Talk to a health care professional.
