Many Older People Skip Vaccinations

Paula Span writing in the New York Times reported on “an ongoing and vexing public health problem:  People once vigilant about vaccinating their children aren’t nearly as careful about protecting themselves as they age, even though diseases like influenza, pneumonia and shingles…are particularly dangerous for older people.” Carolyn Bridges, MD, Associate Director for Adult Immunization at the CDC, said, “Trying to prevent these common and often debilitating conditions is incredibly important for older adults.”

Comment:  Shame on you if you aren’t getting your shots.
