Recently been diagnoised w/diabetes in 2009. Born early to mid 1960's. Should I get my vaccinations updated since the last time in 1974?

Only your doctor can answer that question. My doctor never mention re-vaccination since my diagnosis.

I've had my shots up-dated since diagnosis with Type 2. I recently had a DPT booster shot since daughter-in-law was expecting and I've also had the shingles shot. It's the same doctor that treats my Type 2. It's always best to ask.
