CATCH-UP/ ADULT IMMUNIZATION:
Catch-Up immunization is generally for person’s age 4 months through to 18years who started immunization late or who are 1 month behind in their schedule. On the other hand adult immunization refers to immunization given to adults (usually 19years and above) depending on lifestyle, overall health status, pregnancy status, travel plans, profession, sexual preferences and other risk factors that may expose such an adult to vaccine preventable diseases. In a few cases, adult immunization is given as routine booster doses.
