User :   Hi Doctor
Doctor :   Ok, you can proceed with the query.
User :   Hepatitis vaccination consists of 3 primary doses and a booster dose given after 5 years for lifelong immunity. Tetanus vaccination is given as a 2 dose course in adults for lifelong immunity (recommended even for those who have received 4 doses in childhood). Ask your doctor about the other vaccinations required at your age. These could include Typhoid vaccine, Flu vaccine, and Pneumococcal vaccine for the elderly.
