Whooping Cough (Tdap, Tetanus, Diptheria and Pertussis)

What is whooping cough
Also known as pertussis, whooping cough is a highly contagious virus that causes severe coughing. The whooping cough (Tdap) vaccine also protects against diphtheria and tetanus.

Why do I need to be immunized?
You're less likely to contract pertussis, diphtheria or tetanus if youre vaccinated.

Who should get the vaccine?
Infants and young children are most at risk for developing complications. The CDC recommends infant vaccinations and a booster at ages 11 or 12 to maintain immunity.

Meningitis

What is meningitis?
Meningitis is the inflammation of the meninges, the protective lining that covers the brain and spinal cord, and can be caused by bacteria or viruses.

Why do I need to be immunized?
Meningitis is not very common, but people who spend time in crowded areas like dorm rooms and school classrooms are at a greater risk of contracting the disease. Meningitis can cause severe disease resulting in disabilities and even death.

Who should get the vaccine?
The meningitis vaccine is recommended for adolescents ages 11 through 18.

The Flu (influenza)

What is the flu?
The flu is an illness of the nose, throat and lungs caused by several strains of influenza viruses. It spreads when infected people cough or sneeze and can cause mild to severe illness.

Why do I need to be immunized?
The flu is highly contagious. Seasonal vaccines are designed to protect against strains likely to spread over the coming year.

Who should get the vaccine?
The CDC recommends everyone who is able to be vaccinated get immunized against the flu. Need a needle-free solution? Walgreens can vaccinate against the flu with a nasal spray.
