In the last year, vaccines have become part of our day-to-day conversation topics. When you touch you, how many have you put them, where you put it, what side effects you have had, what brand has you touched you ... In a few months, millions of Spaniards in adulthood have revived how it was what managed a vaccine .
And is that many of them the last time a vaccine had been put was at fourteen. Because we all know the calendar of childhood vaccination: the triple viral, that of polio, that of tetanus ... but what few people know is that there is also a vaccination calendar for adults.
If taking advantage of the fear of the needle, they want to know everything about these other vaccines that we must put the adults, I invite you to continue reading.
With this vaccine, the first thing is to check the state of pre-vaccination and assess the individual risk.
If in childhood and adolescence you received the corresponding doses according to the current calendar at that time, the recommendable thing is that it receives a single dose of memory around 65 years.
But if you did not receive the vaccine before or it was incompletely, then the recommended thing is to start or complete the immunization until you receive the three doses plus the souvenirs.
If at any time of adulthood you suffer a wound with the possibility of tetanus risk (very contaminated, bites ...) you would have to assess your state of vaccination individually.

It is only recommended in adults with a high risk of infection due to its personal, labor or health situation: people with chronic liver disease, sex professionals, workers in contact with wastewater ...
Chickenpox is a disease especially serious in adulthood, so all those people who have no record of immunity should receive two doses of the vaccine with a separation of, at least four weeks.
They will not need any vaccine those adults who have received two doses at some point in their lives. If there are doubts about it then a serological determination will be carried out, that is, a blood test will be done to look for the presence of antibodies and know if they need to be vaccinated or not.
The vaccination calendar of adults from the National Health System recommends vaccination against pneumococcus from 65 years of age.
With this vaccine we protect ourselves against severe, and even fatal infections, such as pneumonia caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae.
