Mom Knows Best
Mom Knows Best: Although college students might be soaking up a lot of knowledge in school, there's one piece of information that may not be sinking in: the importance of getting vaccinated against the flu. While the CDC recommends that everyone 6 months of age and older get a flu vaccine every season, college-aged adults have low vaccination rates of just 8 to 30 percent. Additionally, college students are at a particularly high risk of getting and spreading the flu because of exposure to high-touch areas like common living spaces and classrooms, and through social activities. To help educate college-aged adults and encourage vaccination against the flu, Families Fighting Flu, in partnership with bioCSL Inc. and Alana's Foundation, have launched this new public service announcement (PSA).

Although poliovirus is no longer endemic in the United States, there is always the possibility that it could be imported. That's why it is important to exclude poliovirus infection in clinically compatible, unexplained cases of acute flaccid paralysis, to ensure that any case of poliomyelitis is quickly identified and investigated.
