Health dept. recommends adult immunizations

GENESEE COUNTY — There are many things that adults may want to pass on to their loved ones. Perhaps a family tradition, a grandmother’s handmade quilt, or a favorite recipe — but no one wants to pass on a serious illness. Every year, adults in the United States become sick, are hospitalized, and some die from diseases that could be prevented from vaccination.

Adults know that children need vaccines. But many adults are unaware that they themselves need vaccines to help prevent disease. All adults should receive one dose of Tdap vaccine to help prevent tetanus and whooping cough, and should also be vaccinated against influenza each year.
