Vaccinations & Immunizations
There are many things we want to pass on to our loved ones. Illness is not one of them.
You want to pass on certain things like family traditions, a grandmother's quilt or a dad's love of books, but no one wants to pass on a serious illness. Take charge of your health and help protect those around you by asking about vaccines at your next doctor's visit.
Vaccinating our children is commonplace in the United States. But few adults know they need vaccines, and even fewer are fully vaccinated. Only 24 percent of adults ages 60 and older have received a shingles vaccine and only 17 percent of adults older than 19 have received a Tdap vaccine. Are you one of the millions of adults not aware of the vaccines you need?
Each year, tens of thousands of adults needlessly suffer, are hospitalized, and even die as a result of diseases that could be prevented by vaccines. However, a recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) survey showed that most U.S. adults are not even aware that they need vaccines throughout their lives to protect against diseases like pertussis, hepatitis, shingles, and pneumococcal disease.
To put the benefit of vaccinations into perspective, the estimated number of influenza-associated illnesses prevented by flu vaccination during the 2015-2016 flu season was nearly 5.1 million, or slightly more than the population of the state of Colorado. Further, the estimated number of flu-associated medical visits prevented by vaccination during the 2015-2016 season was nearly 2.6 million, or the equivalent to the passengers of 765 Carnival cruise ships. And finally, the estimated number of flu hospitalizations prevented during the 2015-2016 season was nearly 75,000, or slightly less than Giants Stadium at full capacity.
Not only can vaccine-preventable diseases make you very sick, but if you get sick, you may risk spreading certain diseases to others. That's a risk most of us do not want to take. Infants, older adults and people with weakened immune systems (like those undergoing cancer treatment) are especially vulnerable to infectious diseases. They are also more likely to have severe illness and complications if they do get sick. You can help protect your health and the health of your loved ones by getting your recommended vaccines.
The good news is that getting vaccinated is easier than you think. Adults ages 18 and up can get vaccines at Seybridge Pharmacy. Most health insurance plans cover the cost of recommended vaccines.
