Vaccination against certain diseases is a routine part of many people’s health care.
We recommend that everyone makes sure they have received vaccinations against common diseases such as measles and mumps. In addition, most people should receive vaccinations against hepatitis A and hepatitis B, especially individuals considering taking PrEP.
Some in the LGBT community—especially gay and bisexual men and those living with HIV—should also be vaccinated against meningitis. An outbreak of invasive meningococcal disease has been reported in Southern California.
