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).
