A new report from the CDC says current adult vaccination rates in the U.S. are "unacceptably low."  The agency stresses that, in order to prevent potentially fatal diseases like pneumonia, tetanus, hepatitis and shingles, there needs to be a substantial increase in adult vaccinations.

Adults who don't get vaccinated put others at risk, especially children.  Health officials say adults need to check with their doctors about what vaccines they need.
