Adult Diphtheria Vaccination

Iris Rengganis

Abstract


Low adult vaccination coverage in Indonesia may contribute to a recent outbreak of diphtheria in Indonesia. Although well known as a pediatric vaccine, diphtheria vaccination should be administered as booster to adolescence and adults for longer prevention. Adult vaccine differs from pediatric vaccine but have similar protection. Additionally, there is special recommendation to vaccinate pregnant women and elderly people aged 65 years or more.
