August Is National Immunization Awareness Month
Things have changed a lot since many of us were children when there weren’t very many immunizations available other than DPT (diphtheria, pertussis, and tetanus), polio and small pox. Now there are immunizations to protect our children from Tdap, measles, mumps, rubella, chicken pox, meningitis, HPV (human papillomavirus), hepatitis B, pneumonia, and flu just to name a few.
Our children’s doctor helps us keep up with needed vaccines for the kiddos. Since we are (or were) all conscientious parents we made sure they got the vaccinations they needed in order to keep them healthy. But how many of us are intentional about making sure we keep up with our adult vaccinations?
Young adults may still need boosters for HPV (until 45 years old), Tdap (1 dose Tdap, then Td or Tdap booster every 10 years), Varicella (if born after 1980), Zoster (if born before 1980), flu, Pneumococcal conjugate (1 dose), pneumococcal polysaccharide (1-2 doses), Hepatitis A and B, and meningitis. I hope all of you have been working with your doctors to make sure you have received all of these vaccinations.
In addition, it is a good idea to make sure you are vaccinated against COVID. The vaccine has now been used on millions of adults and has proven to be safe and effective. The areas of our country that are once again showing a spike in outbreaks of COVID are those areas with the lowest immunization rates, thus proving that the vaccine works to prevent the spread of this deadly virus. Be a responsible parent, grandparent, and friend. Make sure you have received your vaccination. It will keep those closest to you safe because you are safe to be around.
