The Student Health Services offers a wide range of adult vaccines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)
- Tetanus/diphtheria/pertussis (Tdap)-Td is a tetanus-diphtheria vaccine given to adolescents and adults as a booster shot every 10 years, or after an exposure to tetanus under some circumstances. Tdap is similar to Td but also containing protection against pertussis. Adolescents 11-18 years of age (preferably at age 11-12 years) and adults 19 through 64 years of age should receive a single dose of Tdap. Tdap can be given no matter when Td was last received.
