National Diabetes Month

Each November, National Diabetes Month brings attention to diabetes and its impact on millions of Americans. Living with diabetes means making time for regular physical activity, eating right, and keeping up with routine medical care. Staying up to date on all recommended vaccines is also an important step in staying healthy. If you have diabetes, ask your doctor which vaccines you need to stay healthy. Even if you don't have diabetes, you can protect others in your community and your loved ones by getting vaccinated. Visit www.cdc.gov/vaccines/adults for more information. Don't Wait. Vaccinate!
