MDCH encourages vaccinations for young adults

LANSING (WKZO) -- In recognition of National Immunization Awareness Month, the Michigan Department of Community Health is urging young adults to get vaccinated against serious diseases like meningitis, whooping cough, HPV, and influenza to name a few.  Getting vaccinated, they say, is a simple step that can help keep young adults healthy before they head off to college or other training programs.

"Even healthy teens and young adults can benefit from vaccines that protect against serious, life-threatening diseases," says Dr. Matthew Davis, Chief Medical Executive at the MDCH.  "Living and studying in dorms and classrooms with lots of other people, and spending a lot of time at social or sports events make diseases easy to spread in college and university settings."
