Adult Vaccination Can Prevent Illness or Death

Each year, tens of thousands of adults in the U.S. suffer serious health problems, are hospitalized, or even die from diseases that could be prevented by vaccines, including influenza, pertussis (whooping cough), certain bacterial infections, hepatitis A & B, shingles & even some cancers including cervical cancer & liver cancer. And while many adults recognize that a flu vaccine is recommended every year, few adults are aware of the need for other vaccines to help protect their health.

Protection from some childhood immunizations wears off over time, leaving adults vulnerable to disease. For example, there has been a rise in cases of pertussis in the last few years with more than 48,000 cases reported in 2012. Protection provided by the Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria & Pertussis) vaccine given to children doesn't last into adulthood, so CDC recommends that all adults get one dose of Tdap vaccine if they didn't receive it at 11 or 12 years of age. Pregnant women should get some vaccines, like Tdap to protect against pertussis during pregnancy. Other vaccines, like the flu shot, can be given during flu season before, during & after pregnancy.

Adults also need other vaccines based on age, health condition, job, lifestyle, travel, or other factors. For example CDC recommends that adults get the shingles vaccine once they turn 60 years old, because as adults get older they are more likely to experience shingles & its severe complications. People with diabetes, heart disease, COPD, or asthma, even if well managed, are at increased risk of developing complications from certain vaccine-preventable diseases.

Vaccines are our best protection against a number of diseases. Many of these diseases are contagious & all could be serious for anyone – even healthy adults. So, staying up-to-date on recommended vaccines is an important part of protecting all of our health.

National Eating Healthy Day

The American Heart Association wants people to listen to the advice of generations of mothers: Eat your Vegetables (& Fruit).

Americans typically consume about half their recommended daily servings of fruits & vegetables. The AHA recommends eating 8 or more fruit & vegetable servings every day. For an average adult consuming 2,000 calories daily, that means about 4 ½ cups of fruits & vegetables a day.

While heart disease & stroke are leading causes of death & disability for all Americans, more than 80 percent of risk factors for heart disease & stroke are preventable through behaviors like making better food choices, getting regular exercise, keeping a healthy weight & not smoking.

The AHA is offering a free fruits & vegetable resource guide to help people incorporate more fruits & vegetables in their diet. For more info on National Eating Healthy Day, download the resource guide or to find recipes & other nutrition info:

RAIN: A Tribute to the Beatles - Wells Fargo Center for the Arts

Tickets go on sale today at 12/Noon.

Performing the full range of The Beatles' discography live onstage, including the most complex & challenging songs that The Beatles themselves recorded in the studio but never performed for an audience. In addition to the updated sets featuring brand new LED, High-Definition screens & multimedia content, new songs have also been included with the launch of the 2014-2015 Tour. Together longer than The Beatles, RAIN has mastered every song, gesture & nuance of the legendary foursome, delivering a totally live, note-for-note performance that’s as infectious as it is transporting. From the early hits to later classics (“I Want To Hold Your Hand,” “Hard Day’s Night,” “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” “Let It Be,” “Come Together,” “Hey Jude” & more), this adoring tribute will take you back to a time when all you needed was love & a little help from your friends in a performance the Los Angeles Times calls, “A 2-hour homage to pop music’s most brilliant gem.”

Tickets: $75, $65 & $55.
