How often should someone be vaccinated ?

Forgive me for my ignorance on this topic. Last time I remember being vaccinated was when I was 12 or 13 at school. I've been vaccinated before that by my elementary school and doctor. I never knew what the vaccines were for. It's been about 10 years since I've been vaccinated. Is it just a one time thing or a yearly thing.

    When you can't remember the last time you were vaccinated is a good rule of thumb.

    Some vaccines require booster shots.  Best to ask a doctor instead of people on the internet.

    depends on the vaccine

    Different frequencies for different vaccines.

    Flu vaccine is once a year, while other vaccines are once a life time.

    Still, others are every 10 years.

    Some Vaccines only need to be applied one time. Many others need to be applied multiple times. So each one is different. I would ask your family doctor. He will know your medical history and will be able to schedule follow ups if needed.

    Mostly it is a one time thing but for example, tetanus needs a booster shot after about 10 years.

    Talk to your family doctor, they would know what you need and when.

    Your blood test shows which antigens are already mising. I guess that it will be namely the antigens for tetanus.

    One time. Next time you visit your Doctor ask what vaccines you have had.
