Tip of the Month
August is National Immunization Awareness Month
Immunizations are not just for kids—adults need to have immunizations too. Everyone older than age 6 months—including women who are pregnant--should get the flu vaccine each year before flu season begins (usually October through May). The tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis vaccination (tdap) should be given to women during the second trimester of each pregnancy and to anyone who will be in contact with a newborn. Do you know which vaccinations are recommended for you?
