I am young and healthy – do I still need the vaccine?
Yes. If you are a young adult you are not at the highest risk of severe illness or dying, but you are still at risk.
Some vaccines are not yet recommended for those younger than 18 years old since they have not yet been tested in this age group. Once vaccines are approved and recommended for use in this age group, you should follow the national recommendations.
