Seasonal Flu

It is estimated that more than 25 million cases of influenza are reported each year- leading to 200,000 hospitalizations and a range of 3,300 to about 49,000 deaths annually in the United States. Annual flu vaccines are the best defense against the flu for children and adults. Below are some facts about the seasonal flu and seasonal flu vaccine. Learn More About the Seasonal Flu

Pneumonia

Pneumococcal disease is a leading cause of serious illness in children and adults throughout the world. The disease is caused by a common bacterium, the pneumococcus, which can attack different parts of the body. When bacteria invade the lungs, they cause the most common form of community-acquired bacterial pneumonia. Learn More About Pneumonia
