May 2011

The biennial 2011 ranking of America’s 100 Greatest Courses is ready for its close-up.

And for the first time in the list’s history, it has something completely different: 101 courses.

We had a tie at No. 100, which left us no choice but to make room for an

odd number of courses for the first time. Established in 1966, the game’s oldest ranking,

this list is considered the leading symbol of golf-course excellence and integrity.

AUGUST IS…

August is recognized as


National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM)

 

August is National Immunization Awareness Month. This observance provides

the opportunity to remind the community of the importance of immunization.

Make sure that your family and friends are up-to-date on their immunizations.

In August, parents are enrolling children in school, older students are entering college

and adults and the health care community are preparing for the upcoming flu season.

This makes August a particularly good time to focus community attention on the value of immunization.

Vaccines are responsible for the control of many infectious diseases that were once common

in this country. Vaccines have reduced and, in some cases, eliminated many diseases that

once routinely killed or harmed tens of thousands of infants, children and adults.

The viruses and bacteria that cause vaccine-preventable diseases and death still exist

and can infect people who are not protected by vaccines. Vaccine-preventable

diseases have a costly impact, resulting in doctors’ visits, hospitalizations and premature deaths.

Sick children can also cause parents to lose time from work.

Maintaining high immunization rates protects the entire community by interrupting the

transmission of disease-causing bacteria or viruses. This reduces the risk that UN-immunized people

will be exposed to disease-causing agents. This type of protection is known as community or

herd immunity, and embodies the concept that protecting the majority with safe, effective

vaccines also protects those who cannot be immunized for medical reasons.

HPV Vaccine for Boys

What Parents Should Know About the

HPV Vaccine for Boys

 

By Lisa Fayed, About.com Guide

Updated February 16, 2010

 

About.com Health’s Disease and Condition content is reviewed by our Medical Review Board

See More About:

With the FDA approval of the HPV vaccine Gardasil’s use in males, many parents of boys

want to know more about the vaccine, why it is necessary, and what the potential risks

that come with Gardasil.Whether or not to vaccinate your son is a personal decision,

but one that should be informed and based on the medical facts. Researching reputable

health information online and talking to your family pediatrician will help you make the

best decision for you child.

Why Is It Important to Vaccinate Boys with HPV Vaccine?

The FDA advisory has approved the use of Gardasil in males to prevent genital warts. Genital warts are flesh-toned or gray, raised or flat growths that appear on, in, and/or around the genitals. They can grow in clusters that resemble cauliflower, or they can appear singularly. In males, they can appear on the penis, scrotum, testicles, anus, groin, and thighs.In most cases, there is no major health risk associated with genital warts; they do not cause cancer or even result from the same strain of HPV known to cause cancer. However, by vaccinating boys, the result would likely be:

  • less spreading of HPV
  • hopefully, fewer cases of cervical cancer in women
  • perhaps, a decrease in other types of cancer

Vaccinate your son to save someone else’s daughter from possibly getting cervical cancer down the road — that is certainly one valid perspective. But there are others. You also have to evaluate the psychological trauma that can be caused by having genital warts. They are unsightly and can be a major source of sexual shame and embarrassment. They require medical treatment to remove them (often multiple visits), and there is no cure. In addition, vaccinating isn’t just about genital warts. Studies show an increased association between HPV and the development of many types of cancer, especially oral cancer. We know that anal cancer and penile cancer are also two types of cancer that are directly related to HPV, and the vaccine may provide protection against these associated HPV strains.

 

 

The goal of NIAM is to increase awareness about

immunizations across the life span.

Vaccines are one of public health’s greatest triumphs. With the exception of safe water,

no other health strategy, not even antibiotics, has had such a tremendous

effect on reducing disease and improving health.

 Because of nationwide immunization efforts, the occurrence of many

vaccine-preventable diseases has been reduced by more than

99% from the pre-vaccine era. Vaccines have eradicated smallpox, eliminated

wild poliovirus in the U.S. and significantly reduced the number of cases of measles,

diphtheria, rubella, pertussis and other diseases. However,

 the viruses and bacteria that

cause these diseases still exist in the world.  Vaccine-preventable diseases cause millions

of deaths worldwide and tens of thousands of death in the US each year.

Why are immunizations important?


Immunization is one of the most significant public health achievements of the 20th century.

But despite these efforts, today tens of thousands of people in the U.S. still die from vaccine-preventable diseases.

Vaccines offer safe and effective protection from infectious diseases. By staying up-to-date on the recommended

vaccines, individuals can protect themselves, their families and friends and their communities from serious,

life-threatening infections. Who should be immunized?
Getting immunized is a lifelong, life-protecting community

effort regardless of age, sex, race, ethnic background or country of origin. Recommended vaccinations

begin at birth and continue throughout life. Being up to date on the vaccines that are recommended for

infants, children, adolescents, and adults of all ages is critical to protecting ourselves,

our loved ones, and our communities from disease.

When are immunizations given?


Because children are particularly vulnerable to infection, most vaccines are given during the first five to six years of life.

Other immunizations are recommended during adolescent and adult years and, for certain vaccines,

booster immunization are recommended throughout life. Vaccines against certain diseases that

may be encountered when traveling outside of the U.S. are recommended for

travelers to specific regions of t
