Immunization

Long-lasting protection is available against measles, mumps, German measles, tetanus (lockjaw), whooping cough, diphtheria, chickenpox, flu and hepatitis B. Immunization against all of these is recommended for children by all major medical bodies of the world.

Immunization is also important for adults. Those unprotected against any of the above diseases (except whooping cough should consult their physicians. Tetanus boosters should be administered every ten years. Flu shots (which give only seasonal protection) and immunization against pneumonia are recommended for high-risk patients, elderly individuals, and certain institutional populations.

The success of vaccination programs in the United States and Europe inspired the 20th-century concept of "disease eradication" -- the idea that a selected disease can be eradicated from all human populations through global cooperation. In 1977, after a decade-long campaign involving 33 countries, smallpox was eradicated worldwide. Polio caused by wild virus has been eradicated from the Western Hemisphere; childhood vaccination levels in the United States are at an all-time high; and disease and death from diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, measles, mumps, rubella and flu are at or near record lows.

Don’t be at the short end of the stick, immunize yourself.
