Annual Immunizations for Your Senior Loved One

Getting immunization is one of the best forms of health protection. Seniors, especially, are prone to a lot of diseases so they have to be updated with the necessary vaccines to keep risks at bay.

So, what are these annual immunizations, and why should your senior have them?

Total Assurance Home Healthcare is a provider of home healthcare services in Connecticut dedicated to improving the lives of our senior clients. As such, we would like to share some information on how you can maintain your loved one’s wellness through vaccines.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests the following immunizations for adults 50 years old and up.

  1. Influenza vaccines
  2. The flu affects all ages. The flu vaccine is especially important for people with chronic health conditions, pregnant women, and older adults.

  3. Shingles vaccine
  4. This vaccine can prevent shingles, a viral infection that causes painful rashes all over the body.

  5. Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis)
  6. The Tdap vaccine prevents the following risks:
    a. Tetanus could lead to serious health issues, such as trouble with swallowing and breathing.
    b. Diphtheria can lead to difficulty breathing, heart failure, paralysis, or death.
    c. Pertussis can cause uncontrollable, violent coughing that makes it hard to breathe, eat, or drink.

  7. Pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (PPSV23)
  8. This vaccine prevents meningitis and bloodstream infections.

  9. Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV13)
  10. This protects us from serious pneumococcal disease and pneumonia.

Our home care services in Brookfield, Connecticut, can accompany your loved one in getting the following vaccines from healthcare centers. It is our goal to help them keep up with their wellness while aging freely and healthily.
