Wellness Focus: Immunizations aren't just for kids
Bike helmets. Vegetables. Vaccines. If you have kids, chances are you've fought these battles. But you know it's worth it to protect your kids' health. But do you take a hard line when it comes to your health, as well? Lots of adults aren't up to date on their vaccines (immunizations). Shots aren't just for kids. They're also important for adults because:
- Immunity can fade over time, which could expose you to diseases that are more severe for adults than for kids.
- Newer vaccines can help protect against things like chicken pox and the virus that causes cervical cancer.
- You may have missed some of your shots when you were a kid.
The good news is that it isn't too late to catch up. Not only will you protect yourself and your family, but you could also help to stop the spread of illness worldwide. And that's a battle worth fighting.
