LISTEN TO BOOMTOWN RADIO! “ALL the Music That Matters for the Generation That Created Rock 'n' Roll”

We're Not Your Mother, But...

Have you been keeping up with all your vaccinations?

Experts estimate that nearly 66% of Baby Boomers over 65 have not yet had their shingles vaccine. More than 40% haven't had a tetanus booster in the last decade.

Hey, we're not indestructible. In fact, our age bracket is one where shingles, the flu or other viruses can have serious consequences.

Do yourself a favor. Consult with your doctor about getting your flu shots annually, a tetanus booster every 10 years and by all means, make sure you've had your shingles vaccine (even if you've already had a shingles outbreak).
