Preventive health care: Who needs it?

If you've never had a serious illness, getting sick is probably the last thing on your mind. Still, good health takes effort. See your doctor for recommended vaccinations and screenings to make sure you're doing everything you can to stay healthy. By getting regular screenings you give your doctor a chance to detect problems early, when they're easiest to treat.
