Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

Each year in the U.S., approximately 50,000 adults die from vaccine-preventable diseases or their complications. In Utah, since 2008, 45 people have died from pneumococcal disease, a leading cause of serious illness in children and adults throughout the world. Other vaccine-preventable illnesses that have resulted in Utah deaths over the past several years include hepatitis A and mumps. And each year, it's estimated that 360 Utahns die from influenza. The best way to protect against all these illnesses is vaccination.

Dottie Flemett, Nursing Director for Southeastern Utah District Health Department said, "Throughout your adult life, you need immunizations to get and maintain protection against illnesses"
