Hit Me With Your Best Shots!
Autumn is in full swing, which means that it’s time to get the immunizations you need in order to protect yourself from serious (and potentially deadly) illnesses. According to the CDC, a flu shot, chickenpox shot, and Td or Tdap shot (which fights against tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis) are recommended for adults of all ages. Of course, there are vaccines recommended for people of different age groups, those who plan to travel, and those with various diseases or conditions. For a full roster of vaccines, visit
www.cdc.gov/vaccines/index.html. Be sure to talk to your doctor about which vaccines are necessary for you. Vaccines can be administered at many local pharmacies, including various CVS, Rite Aid, and Walgreens locations throughout the county.
