Some adults believe vaccines they received as children offer lifelong protection. Most of the time this is true, but there are exceptions. Some adults were never vaccinated as children and others only received a few because not all immunizations were available at the time. While immunity will last for many years, it can begin to fade over time.

Thanks for forum for opinions

Editor, Thanks a lot for printing most of my letters over the years and withholding the ones that would have gotten me arrested.
