Adult vaccines

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - Vaccines are something that you normally associate with children.

But just because you got your shots as a kid, doesn't mean you need to forget all about them.

Dr. William Ferrar is getting his patients over the age of 20 up to date on vaccines like whooping cough and pneumonia.

Whooping is a potentially fatal disease for the little ones, but an annoyance with prolonged cough in adults.

The new pneumonia vaccine is much more potent than the previous version.

Ask about the vaccines at your next office visit with your doctor.
