    One of the biggest problems in trying to convince people that they need to immunize against things like the flu is that they don’t really feel the pressure. After all, for most people, the flu shot is an inconvenience, and they’re unlikely to get the flu in a given year. So why bother?

    Rates of teen suicide continue to rise, federal health officials reported this month, with rates for girls higher than at any point in the last 40 years.
