[ARCHIVED] Health Department encourages adults to get up-to-date on vaccinations

Midland Health & Senior Services, public health officials and infectious disease experts are working together to better educate adults in the Midland community about what immunizations they need and what they can do to prevent disease.

There is a need for more adults to become vaccinated against devastating diseases such as pneumonia, shingles and whooping cough. With the recent focus on the dangers of failing to vaccinate children, experts say that not only may unvaccinated adults not realize that they are at risk themselves, but they also pose a risk of passing diseases on to the young, the frail and the elderly. For instance, adults are the most common source of whooping cough infections in infants, who are at high risk of serious complications or death from the disease.

Adults are encouraged to visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website to access an easy-to-read consumer version of the vaccination schedule, including immunizations for two types of hepatitis and meningitis.

Midland Health & Senior Services offers these vaccines at 3303 W. Illinois in the Kingsway Mall and can assist individuals in understanding the CDC vaccination schedule. For more information or assistance, please call 432-681-7613.
