When you pick up the phone to schedule your child’s immunizations with your family doctor, think about your own.
When was the last time you were vaccinated against tetanus, diphtheria and whooping cough?
A report from the nonprofit Trust for America’s Health found that only 2 percent of adults are vaccinated against these viruses. Fewer than one-third of adults get an annual flu shot.
Not only will vaccinations protect you against these diseases, but it will help prevent you from passing them to your children.
