Just a quick follow up from the last post. Here’s that booster shot I said I’d get.
While waiting the required 15 minutes before leaving my local community health centre I read the package insert, and I can tell you that I am:
- one of the ~72% of adults who experience pain at the injection site for a short time following the immunisation; and
- one of the estimated only ~11% of Australian adults up to date on their pertussis boosters
Whooping cough is a vaccine preventable illness. Do your bit to protect yourself and your community from it, as well as from diphtheria, and yourself from tetanus.
Call your doctor and book an appointment for YOUR booster shot today.
And Remember: Real guys immunise.
