Note: More vaccines may be needed because of health conditions, work, school, living arrangements, household contacts, lifestyle risks, travel, or because a person was not fully immunized in childhood. Check with your healthcare provider, a public health nurse, your workplace health and safety department, or a travel health clinic (e.g. AHS Travel Health Services) to find out if you need any other vaccines and if they are free for you.
