Men’s Health Week is June 9–15. There’s no better time to think about the immunizations you need. Talk with your doctor about the following recommendations to make sure they are appropriate for you:
■ Get a flu shot every year.
■ Get shots for tetanus and whooping cough.
■ If you are age 60 or older, get a shot to prevent shingles.
■ If you are age 65 or older, get a pneumonia shot.
■ Talk with your healthcare team about whether you need other vaccinations.
