Vaccine Time? Booster Time? How To Check The Recommendations

Is it time to get a booster or time to get vaccinated? For the gynos we talk about not passing on STDs, but you don't want to pass preventable communicable diseases on to your sex partner either! These guidelines do change and travel plans and being around young children will alter the recommendations for each individual. Knowing what you need for a vaccination is important. For the most part you can track your vaccinations from medical records, your medical history, or blood testing. But if not sure, for the most part you can be re-vaccinated, it's not harmful for instance to get a repeat measles vaccine, and to some extend repeat doing may actually boost your immunity. Babies and young children have better immune systems than older adults so they gather more immunity than we do from a single shot and why the pediatricians are the main guardians of most vaccinations. You may have once contracted a disease or have been vaccinated and yet not test immune on a blood test.  Chicken pox is one of those conditions that many do not test immune to, and it is a recommendation to have the Varicella vaccine if you are not immune. Your neighbors have been protective of you because we have up until now enjoyed fairly comprehensive population immunity to certain diseases because of the completeness of vaccination. As myths regarding vaccination harms have seeped into a population who has not carefully researched vaccine benefits, we are more at risk than ever of contracting communicable diseases which up until now have been preventable diseases Your gyno hast to follow the CDC sites to keep up with the vaccine trends, and you should too if you want to know more, they have just released the new recommendations, discuss with your primary care providers but here are the links if you want to know more from the CDC Website as they say that each year, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) approves immunization schedules recommended for persons living in the United States. The adult immunization schedule provides a summary of ACIP recommendations on the use of licensed vaccines routinely recommended for adults aged 19 years or older. The adult immunization schedule is also approved by many medical societies including those listed on the CDC website: the American College of Physicians (ACP), the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), and the American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM). For individual recommendations.
