Vaccinations often are thought of as a childhood recommendation, but there are important vaccinations for adults, too. Between 50,000 and 100,000 Americans die each year from vaccine-preventable diseases, such as flu and pneumonia, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). On the Mayo Clinic Radio podcast, Dr. Gregory Poland, a Mayo Clinic vaccine researcher, covers adult vaccinations, including what you need and when you need it. Dr. Poland also gives an update on the flu season and research on a new universal flu vaccine. Also on the podcast, Dr. Stephen Kopecky, a Mayo Clinic cardiologist, discusses aspirin, eggs and heart disease. And Dr. Mitchell Humphreys, a Mayo Clinic urologist, discusses the painful problem of kidney stones.
