IMMUNIZATIONS: Not Just for Kids By- Concentra Urgent Care Although most toddlers in the United States have received all recommended vaccines, many adults and adolescents have not. These missed vaccinations increase their risk for infection, hospitalization, death, and disease spread, and they contribute to the estimated $10 billion that is spent annually on vaccine preventable diseases in the United States. Evidence shows that currently approved vaccines are safe and effective. However, coverage rates for persons of all ages vary nationwide. Reasons cited include lack of health insurance, unfamiliarity with vaccine recommendations, limited access at physicians’ offices, or the perceived cost of vaccines. What you need to know is that obtaining recommended vaccines in a timely manner can prevent disease. The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends the following immunization schedule for generally healthy adults and adolescents: VACCINE

RECOMMENDED SCHEDULE

Influenza........................................................................ Yearly, especially if at risk Meningococcal...........One dose, age 11-12 or 13-18 if not previously immunized Tetanus-Diphtheria/Tetanus.... One dose, age 11-12, then booster every 10 years -Diphtheria-Pertussis Human Papilloma Virus............................. Three doses, age 11-26 (females only) Measles - Mumps - Rubella.................................................................................. ................... If born after 1956, one or two doses if never immunized up to age 65 Pneumococcal............................................................ One dose, at or after age 65 Varicella (chicken pox).Two doses if no prior infection or immunization received Zoster (shingles)........................................................ One dose, at or after age 60 Specific recommendations for individuals may vary depending on age, prior immunization history and the presence of other existing conditions; please see the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Web site at: http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/recs/ schedules/default.htm. For more information about immunizations and where to get them, contact your health care provider, your Concentra health specialist, or visit the CDC’s Web Site at: www.cdc.gov/vaccines.

MAYFIELD RANCH TIPS AND TIDBITS - QUESTION OF THE MONTH by Debby Cole

no proven strategy for prevention. Another organism is Xylella or Bacterial Leaf Scorch. The vector for spread is several insects. Symptoms include marginal leaf scorch, declining vigor, dieback and sometimes death. One of the stress factors which favors this disease is drought. This pathogen attacks several different plant materials but red oak is one of them.

Wo u l d yo u s e n d e ve r yo n e information on all of the effects of the Texas drought? Landscapes all over the state are suffering and we want everyone to know what is happening. (Question comes from a GTL staffer) We will give you basic information on several issues affecting our landscapes. Feel free to ask for more information or “Google” the particular topic to find out more. IRRIGATION PROBLEMS

As we have reported previously, all of the deficiencies in an irrigation system really show up when we are in a drought. Poor spacing of heads, low pressure, worn diaphragms all contribute to less than stellar performance of your irrigation. Solution? Audit and evaluate during “down times” and perform repairs and upgrades as recommended by your irrigation professional. And remember an irrigation system is meant to supplement rain. It can never replace it. EVAPO-TRANSPIRATION Ba s e d u p o n E T re p o r t s ( e v a p o transpiration) our turf is currently requiring 4.77 inches of water per week in order to just replace moisture through a plant’s natural chemical processes. There is no way a turf that exists in full sun can flourish in these conditions. Add shallow soil, poorly

designed irrigation and the result is brown “hot spots”. All other plants materials are struggling as well. TREES ARE STRUGGLING TOO

Trees and specifically red oaks are struggling in the drought. Although many harmful organisms can co-exist within trees for many seasons, once there is a stressful situation, the trees begin to show signs of poor health and even death. As we reported right after the freeze of 2011, damage might not appear on trees for many months…until a hot, droughty situation. Which is where we are at the moment. One of the problems is Botryosphaeria canker and dieback of trees and shrubs. This is an opportunistic fungus which causes disease on plants that are stressed. There is

LIRIOPE Liriope is the NO-NO plant of the month. Look over the past 12 months and reflect on its performance in our landscapes. It has suffered browning from cold in the winter and yellowing/browning from heat in the summer. Work to eliminate this groundcover from landscapes except in limited areas (shade) and limited numbers.
