July 2013 - Stick it to Me

Life's hidden hazards

When we get into these lazy, hazy days of summer, it's easy to forget our troubles, spend hours in a hammock with a book or swimming at the shore, and live in the moment. But, wait, school is right around the corner and in addition to shopping for pencil cases and binders, you should also be checking your child's immunization records to make sure he's compliant with the law. In between sets of volleyball in the pool, print out a schedule from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and talk to the pediatrician.

While you're at it, check on your own immunizations. Adults are, unfortunately, not immune to potentially deadly diseases. Even if you have a fear of needles, you need to protect yourself and your family.

In other health news this month, new mothers worldwide will be celebrating the act of breastfeeding - did you know how many services are available if you have trouble breastfeeding your child? - while soaring humidity levels make it difficult, but not impossible, to exercise outside.
