spacer New NIHSeniorHealth Topic Recommends Health Screenings and Shots for Older Adults
Getting the recommended health screenings and immunizations at the right time is an important part of managing your health as you age. But do you know which ones you need? A new topic from NIHSeniorHealth, Health Screenings and Immunizations, has information that can help.
Visit NIHSeniorHealth to see:
  • recommended screenings for women 50+
  • recommended screenings for men 50+
  • recommended immunizations for adults 50+
  • how the screenings and immunizations are performed
  • questions to ask your health care provider
    ...and more!
The Health Screenings and Immunizations topic was developed by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), based on their Women Stay Healthy at 50+ and Men Stay Healthy at 50+ online brochures.
