Immunizations offer protection from vaccine-preventable diseases. Some areas in the United States are experiencing re-emergence of some of these diseases. Take the time to check your immunization status and ensure you are up-to-date on especially MMR, Tdap, and Meningococcal vaccines. You may get these and other vaccines at the Calloway County Health Department (270)753-3381 or any local physician’s office. Contact MSU Health Services for further information. You can also find current disease trends and immunization information at www.cdc.gov.
