Immunization - Adult and Seniors Services

Immunization is not just for children – it is a lifelong process. Alberta Health Services provides routine immunization for adults and seniors across Alberta. Immunization is free of charge for individuals who live, work or go to school in Alberta.

In order to protect yourself and the people you live or are in contact with, adults need:

  • a booster dose of tetanus/diphtheria vaccine every 10 years. (If not fully immunized as a baby, adults may need more than just a booster dose.)
  • an adult booster dose of pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine. This is combined with one of the tetanus/diphtheria boosters (dTap) and is especially important if adults are in contact with infants and young children
  • influenza vaccine annually –recommended for all Albertans  6 months of age and older. Anyone can get seriously ill and develop complications from influenza, but the risk is highest for children under 5 years of age, adults 65 years of age and older, pregnant women, people who have health conditions, people who live in care facilities, and indigenous peoples. Annual influenza immunization is especially important for these people and people they are in contact with
  • immunization for diseases they may be at risk for because of age, lifestyle, health condition, occupation, travel plans or who they are in close contact with. This includes pneumococcal vaccine which is recommended for all adults 65 years of age and older and adults with certain health problems
  • catch-up doses of vaccines that may have been missed in childhood. It is never too late to catch-up on immunizations

Immunization is effective. Other than providing safe drinking water, no other health intervention works as well as immunization to reduce disease and death rates. Immunization protects whole communities. The more people who are fully immunized in a community, the safer everyone is.

Immunization is safe.  It is much safer to get immunized than to get the diseases that vaccines protect against.

To find out which vaccines are recommended for you and to book an appointment for immunization, call your nearest community/public health centre. If you are not sure where your nearest community/public health centre is, you can call Health Link at 811.  Bring any immunization records you have to the appointment, especially if you were immunized in another province or country.

For more general information about immunization, go to Immunizations at myhealth.alberta.ca or call Health Link.
