Key Facts about Seasonal Flu Vaccine

Flu Vaccination Why should people get vaccinated against the flu? Influenza is a serious disease that can lead to hospitalization and sometimes even death. Every flu season is different, and influenza infection can affect people differently. Even healthy people can get very sick from the flu and spread it to others. Over a period of 31 seasons between 1976 and 2007, estimates of flu-associated deaths in the United States range from a low of about 3,000 to a high of about 49,000 people. During recent flu seasons, between 80% and 90% of flu related deaths have occurred in people 65 years and older. “Flu season” in the United States can begin as early as October and last as late as May.

Facing life (and death) with a plan by Paul Malley

It's probably the last taboo topic of discussion in America – serious illness and death. Neither is optional, both are certain and yet many people think and behave as though they will be forever young and in the best of health. At some point reality intrudes and a spouse, parent or grandparent suddenly falls seriously ill and can't make or communicate life-and-death medical decisions for themselves. Instead of the calm quiet of a living room, family members must hurriedly gather in the hospital waiting room and decide what the seriously ill or dying person would or wouldn't have wanted. The discussion can no longer be deferred because a health care provider needs a decision, and now.

February is Heart Health Month

Tonya's Tips....February is Heart Month Walk for Your Heart Did you know heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States? An American will have a heart attack or stroke about every 25 seconds. February is American Heart Month, so let’s take action to help fight heart disease. Importance of Physical Activity Physical inactivity increases the risk of coronary heart disease. Luckily, this is a modifiable risk factor and improving it is as easy as going for a walk most days of the week. One of the most effective forms of exercise to achieve heart health is walking.

The American Heart Association recommends at least 150 minutes per week of moderate exercise. One way to achieve 150 minutes/week is to do 30 minutes of brisk walking for 5 days of the week.

Five Important Reasons to Vaccinate your child.

Five Important Reasons to Vaccinate Your Child You want to do what is best for your children. You know about the importance of car seats, baby gates and other ways to keep them safe. But, did you know that one of the best ways to protect your children is to make sure they have all of their vaccinations? Immunizations can save your child’s life.
