Adult Immunizations

Vaccinations are valuable at all ages. In some cases immunity from a vaccine can wear off and you may be at risk for new diseases. Your primary care provider (PCP) will keep you up-to-date on vaccinations, so make sure you schedule your preventive care visits as needed.

The specific vaccines you may need are determined by many different factors such as age, lifestyle, high-risk conditions, type and locations of travel, and previous vaccines. Talk to your PCP about what vaccines might be right for you.

Where to get your immunizations

You can go to your PCP or pharmacy or both to get vaccinated. See our list of retail pharmacies that provide vaccinations.
If you receive pharmacy benefits through a carrier other than Dean Health Plan, be sure to confirm insurance coverage of vaccines provided at your pharmacy.

Guidelines to keep in mind:

  • No prescription is necessary if receiving vaccines at one of the listed retail pharmacies
  • Members can get vaccines from your PCP, pharmacy or a combination of both
  • Call your pharmacy to ask if a vaccine is in stock or available
  • Visit cdc.gov to learn more about vaccines and schedules
