WVUA: Health Matters – Adult Immunizations (April 12, 2017)

April 17, 2017

Immunizations are often considered something just for children before they head to day care or school for the first time, but immunizations are important for adults, too. Dr. Jane Weida at University Medical Center in Tuscaloosa says skipping your shots can result in some nasty consequences. Adults should be getting a tetanus and diphtheria shot every 10 years, Weida says, and it’s a good idea to get a whooping cough booster, too.
