Which Vaccinations Are You Current (Up to Date)? (CDC, US Immunizations 2009)

According to the attached Recommended Adult Immunization Schedule by the US Center for Disease Control (CDC), there are 10 primary immunizations adults should consider. I will add A(H1N1) to the mix to make it 11.

Please select all in the poll that you are current and up to date. For example, the seasonal flu is one shot annual. Heb A and B are a series of shots. So, only answer yes if you are up-to-date (or started the series and will complete soon.)


You can also answer yes if you are natually immune due to age or prior exposure (like chicken pox or H1N1, etc).

Note: You can change your vote if you get new immunizations.

For example, I am considering getting A(H1N1) if "they" ever make it available in the region I live... but so far only the "elite" can get it (government PMs, parliament members, royalty, etc....)...... Vaccinations based on social status..... hahahaha.

I added a few because I have a few non standard ones due to travel requirements. I didn't add malaria since that is a continuous immunization.

For travel specific immunizations, we should also add Typhoid and Japanese Encephalitis (JE).

You left out smallpox.

Actually some years back I read a book called biohazard authored by a russian scientist suppose to be an expert on bioweapons.

When they announced the eradication of smallpox around the 70's and stopped producing smallpox vaccines, the communists during the coldwar started producing and stockpiling smallpox agents and keeping them in their warheads. So those born after 80's or 90's .... well sorry guys. (,

In my first post, the plan was to only list the basic immunizations for adults recommended by the US CDC.

I am going to change the poll and go back to the original intent' which is not to list every disease under the sun (in this particular survey).


For the purpose of this poll/survey/discussion are following the general US CDC recommendations for adults, 2009. Smallpox is not recommended.

---------- Post updated at 08:09 ---------- Previous update was at 06:45 ----------

Poll changed back to original intend to follow the CDC recommendations (general) for US immunizations.

For travel and geographic related immunizations, we will start another poll in the future.

Also, see attached.

According to the US CDC, smallpox immunization is not recommended for the general public:

Quote:
Vaccination (for smallpox) is not recommended for persons who do not directly handle nonhighly attenuated virus cultures or materials or who do not work with animals contaminated or infected with these viruses.
