Best Answer

Immunizations are administrations of substances which protect a person from becoming infected by particular pathogens (bacteria, viruses, etc).

Some immunizations are effective only if given at certain ages, or are not considered to be needed in people at other ages. For example, the Hemophilus immunization is needed in childhood, but Hemophilus infections are not common in adulthood. So it would not be appropriate to give a Hemophilus immunization to an adult. In the United States, the body which determines which immunizations are needed is the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
