The guidelines surrounding vaccinations for international #travel are incredibly varied, making it all the more challenging to understand what’s expected of you. Some countries simply work to educate people on how vaccines can help them, but ultimately let each person decide whether they want to get them. Other countries offer a financial incentive to get vaccinated.

The CDC says HPV #vaccination can prevent many cancers, and urges pediatricians to recommend HPV vaccination for all their patients, beginning at age 11.
But a new analysis from the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association finds only 29 percent of the teens its members insure receive a first dose of the HPV vaccine by their 13th birthday. And the CDC finds, nationally, only 43 percent of teens are up-to-date on all the recommended doses of the #vaccine:

Employee #wellness programs have experienced their own renaissance as of late, with employers investing more in their employees’ health in hopes of improving attendance, performance, and overall workplace morale. However, the mere hope of a wellness plan improving the workplace isn’t quite enough to convince a business to invest in it; what does the data say? Do wellness plans work? What kind of return might you get on your investment?

Vaccination has been recommended for decades as the best way to protect yourself against flu, but it’s no silver bullet. The shot’s effectiveness varies from year to year, depending on the closeness of the match between that season’s viruses and the vaccine, which is usually reformulated each year.

We are so careful to make sure our children are properly vaccinated; why not treat ourselves, as grown adults, with the same concern and consideration? We may be bigger and stronger, but we still need #vaccines to protect us against threatening and possibly even fatal diseases.

An increase in research funding on adjuvants, more effective dosing regimens and better production methods are simple changes that would better prepare us to face flu outbreaks. Increasing the funding for developing a universal vaccine is more challenging, but it promises much greater results. The fraught #fluseason of 2017-18 is a sign we need to conquer the disease once and for all.

The University of California, Los Angeles–led group reported in this week’s Science that they may have created the “Goldilocks” of #flu #vaccines—one that manages to trigger a very strong immune response without making infected animals sick. And unlike current flu vaccines, the new version also fuels a strong reaction from disease-fighting white blood cells called T cells.

There are over 40 different kinds of #HPV; symptoms can include genital warts, but not everyone will get them. It’s very infectious and can be spread through simple skin-to-skin contact. While a doctor may be able to diagnose someone with HPV merely by examining for genital warts, additional testing might still be needed; results can be obtained six weeks after one has been exposed to the disease.http://ow.ly/zKhk30hWkty
