WASHINGTON -- Healthcare workers are getting vaccinated against influenza at the highest rates ever, especially physicians, according to statistics released Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID). The groups called on healthcare workers to encourage others -- especially those age 65 and up -- to get vaccinated annually and recommended against children using nasal spray influenza vaccinations this year. The announcement was made here at the 20th annual NFID Influenza/Pneumococcal news conference. http://bit.ly/2deqVoB

A very good thing. Have you had YOUR vaccination yet? I'll be getting mine soon. Smallpox, polio, and now measles...these diseases are eradicated in major parts of the world, due in good part to vaccinations. They WORK.
