    Transcript

    00:01 Hi! Welcome to our video series on pneumonia.

    00:04 In this one, I'm going to break down information on the pneumococcal and the influenza vaccines.

    00:10 Ready? Let's go.

    00:12 Now the American thoracic society is told us that pneumonia is the most common cause of hospital admissions second only to women giving birth.

    00:20 So pneumonia is a big problem in the United States over 50,000 people die from pneumonia yearly.

    00:28 So the elderly have the highest risk for contracting pneumonia and for dying from pneumonia.

    00:33 And ammonia is the most common cause of sepsis and septic shock.

    00:38 So I think we've given you enough data here to help you see that pneumonia is problematic.

    00:44 Is there anything that we can do to help our patients be healthier? Well vaccines save lives.

    00:50 I know that is a risky political statement, but just hear me out and I want you to make your own decision.

    00:57 Now as healthcare workers, we have to be vaccinated in the United States, it's not optional for us.

    01:03 But I want you to be educated on what goes into vaccines? Why may be effective or not be effective and make your own decision.

    01:11 So we're going to run with vaccine saves lives in this video presentation.

    01:16 I'm going to talk about the influenza vaccine or the flu and the pneumococcal vaccination which you may have heard called the pneumonia vaccine.
