In brief: No
If you eat a healthy, well-balanced, high-quality diet and have no other medical problems, you most likely don't need vitamin supplements.
Also, most grains, milk, and table salt is already fortified per usda regulations. However, there are periods in one's life in which extra supplementation of certain vitamins is needed, e.g., pregnancy or chance of getting pregnant. Ask your doctor to be sure.
