Washington State Medical Association (WSMA) Urges Adults to Get Recommended Immunizations
Date:5/3/2012

SEATTLE, May 3, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In the past couple of months, Washington state has made national news with an epidemic of whooping cough and ongoing attention to measles outbreaks across the county—two deadly diseases that vaccines can prevent. The Washington State Medical Association (WSMA) is urging adults to make sure they are current on their immunizations and get the needed booster shots to keep their immunity strong. It's especially important for those who have contact with pregnant women, young children, and people with compromised immune systems.

"We talk all the time about the importance of children getting their recommended immunizations," said Brian Seppi, M.D., of Physicians Clinic of Spokane and executive officer of WSMA. "It's equally important for adults to be properly immunized, yet they are often unaware they need a booster shot to prevent the spread of some of these terrible diseases."

By not getting the required shots and boosters, adults in our community could be putting others at risk—especially pregnant women, children who are not fully immunized yet, and those with compromised immune systems.

"Every adult—young and old—should talk with their doctor about what vaccines they need," said Dr. Seppi. "If you don't have a complete record of your immunizations, talk with a physician who can recommend how to proceed."

This is an important issue and one that is easy to remedy. Below is a quick overview of recommended immunizations for adults from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The complete, easy-to-read chart can be downloaded from the CDC website (http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/recs/schedules/downloads/adult/adult-schedule-contraindicactions.pd
