A new three-minute animated video tells the story of how antibiotic-resistant “superbug” bacteria have become a serious public health threat that affects everyone. The video frames the problem uniquely: treating antibiotics as a natural resource that can be depleted with overuse, just like water, trees, and other resources.
The video lays out specific steps that everyone—including doctors, hospitals, and consumers—can take to tackle the problem.
The video was produced by Extending the Cure, a grantee of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have released new provisional recommendations for the Tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (Tdap) vaccine for pregnant women. All pregnant women should receive a dose of Tdap vaccine during each pregnancy or immediately postpartum, regardless of the patient's prior history of receiving Tdap.
The Milam County Health Department is open until 6:00 pm on the first Monday of every month.
