Question: 

What is the schedule of immunizations if you have had a splenectomy in 1998. Am 75 yrs old now.

Answer: 

There are vaccines recommended for all adults and additional vaccines for adults who have had a splenectomy. Read more about vaccines for adults here.

An immunizing healthcare provider needs to review your immunization and health history to determine the vaccines recommended for you. Speak with a public health nurse at your local health unit to make a vaccine appointment. Find a health unit near you here.
