If you have not reviewed your immunization records in a while, don't allow yourself to get an unpleasant surprise!

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Vaccines are recommended throughout our lives based on age, occupation, lifestyle, locations of travel, medical conditions, and vaccines you had had in the past. When you are not up-to-date on your vaccines, you leave yourself and your loved ones vulnerable to serious diseases like influenza, hepatitis, and pneumococcal disease. Some diseases, like pertussis (or whooping cough), can be tough enough on an adult—but may be deadly for a newborn or young children. Vaccines can reduce the risk of diseases ranging from severe bacterial infections, persistent and painful viruses, and even cancer.

Have a discussion with your personal physician about the vaccines that are appropriate to keep you protected.
