Screening Tests and Vaccines

Early detection of diseases and vaccinations are a cornerstone of women’s health plan that includes a solid focus on prevention. Some diseases like hypertension and breast cancer can be difficult to detect as symptoms aren’t always evident until it is too late. But through regular screenings and checkups, women can help reduce the risks of these diseases. Your doctor or medical provider will have information about what screenings and vaccines are needed for your situation, but regular checkups become more important when women begin to age and after they have gone through menopause. Understanding your risk factors can also help you plan your screenings and vaccinations. More information about screening tests and vaccines is available through the links below from www.womenshealth.gov.
