Vaccination schedule : what's changed since 2013
In terms of public health, we should all be properly vaccinated against diphtheria, tetanus and polio. The vaccines are carried out in childhood, but boosters are often overlooked by adults, except when required for certain occupations (gardeners, sanitation workers, health care workers, etc.)

The latest studies show that the vaccine is effective over a long period. Additionally, since 2013 boosters are no longer required every 10 years, only at ages 25, 45 and 65.

Likewise, it is advisable to have one whooping cough booster in adulthood.

Your occupational physician will advise you during your consultation.
