Diabetes and need for vaccination

We all know that children need vaccination to protect against certain infections. Just like children, adults with diabetes also need some of the vaccines to help against certain infections. The immunity in people with diabetes is not as good as that of a person without diabetes and there are certain infections which are more common in people with diabetes. This is the reason why these vaccines are recommended in them. Vaccines recommended in diabetics are:

  • Hepatitis B vaccine
  • Pneumonia vaccine
  • Flu vaccine – every year
  • Tetanus vaccine

At our centre, we offer these vaccines to all our patients to help reduce risk of these infections.
