ARE YOU VACCINATED?
Pneumococcal pneumonia is a serious lung disease that causes breathing difficulties, cough, and fever. In addition to these symptoms, becoming infected with this disease leaves patients at risk for hospitalization, heart issues, and even death. Fortunately, pneumococcal pneumonia is preventable. The CDC recommends that all people over age 65 receive the Prevnar 13 vaccination to help prevent them from contracting the disease. Despite this recommendation, only 4% of eligible patients received their Prevnar 13 vaccine from Liberty Doctors between January and March 2016. We wish to increase this number until we have vaccinated all of our patients who are at risk for pneumococcal pneumonia. If you are unsure if you have received this vaccination, please contact your provider.
REVIEWING YOUR MEDS IS IMPORTANT
There are many medications that can have unpredictable or dangerous effects when taken together. For this reason, it is important to tell your doctor all of the medications you are taking, including any over the counter drugs or herbal supplements. Between November 2015 and January 2016, 68% of patients seen at Liberty Doctors had their medications reviewed with their provider. If you do not know or are uncertain if your doctor is aware of all of your medications, please bring a detailed list to your next appointment.
