    Men, Take Care of Your Health! - Why do men die younger than women?

    Men face some unique health challenges, particularly as they age. While men and women often suffer from the same adverse health conditions, men suffer from many common ailments at an earlier age.

    • A higher percentage of men have no health care coverage.
    • Men go to the doctor for prevention visits half as often as women.
    • Men are employed in greater numbers in the most dangerous occupations, such as mining, firefighting and construction.
    • Men may have less healthy lifestyles, including risk-taking at younger ages.

There are immunizations people ought to consider as they get older – pneumonia, an annual flu shot, meningococcal (for college students) and hepatitis to name a few. Also, everyone should have a tetanus shot every 10 years. Others are recommended if you work in certain jobs, have certain lifestyles, travel to certain places or have certain health conditions.
