Episode Description:

Vaccines are some of medicine’s most effective preventive measures and have an extraordinary record in preventing disease. But aside from an annual flu shot, too often we think of immunizations only for children. Adults need them, too, but more than half don’t know which shots are recommended for their age, and immunization rates remain low. The result: more than 50,000 adults die each year from vaccine-preventable diseases according to the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases.

This month’s episode of Physician Focus aims to increase awareness of the health benefits of adult vaccinations. Among the topics of conversation are the reasons why adult vaccination rates are so low, who should get shots, the barriers to adults getting their recommended shots, and what physicians and patients can do to increase awareness about the importance of vaccinations and get more people immunized.
