Adult Vaccines Are Important Too!

Think vaccines are just for children? Think again! Vaccines protect adults from 14 serious, possibly deadly, diseases. Besides an annual flu shot, adults should receive a tetanus shot every 10 years. There are additional vaccines needed depending on age, job, health conditions, travel, lifestyle and vaccination history. 

ICTC provides all adult vaccines for adults with no insurance for $8 each dose at our events. If you have your shot record, remember to bring it with you!

Where to Get Vaccines

ICTC supports all children having a medical home and should consult with their provider for vaccines. 

There are several ways to obtain vaccines in Tarrant County. Besides ICTC’s low-cost vaccine events held in August, there are community clinics located throughout the county that offer all required and recommended vaccines.
