Diabetes and Vaccines 

People living with diabetes are at increased risk of developing serious complications from vaccine-preventable diseases. These include influenza, pneumococcal disease, hepatitis B, shingles, tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis. 

ADCES has partnered with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to spread the word on the importance of vaccines for people living with diabetes. We encourage you to use the information below and the linked worksheet when talking to your healthcare provider.
