As adults age, their immune systems do not function as well as they did when they were younger. Protection from diseases, like the flu, can greatly diminish due to age and the reduced function of their immune system. Vaccines can help prevent diseases like shingles, flu, and pneumonia, among others.
There are 15 diseases that adults over the age of 65 should get vaccinated against. Research has shown that it is safe to receive multiple vaccines at the same time. Ask your doctor which they would recommend, and to provide a schedule of when they should be given.
