Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States. Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun is the main cause of skin cancer. UV radiation can also come from tanning booths or sunlamps. The most dangerous kind of skin cancer is called melanoma.
Injuries are the leading cause of death for Americans ages 1 to 40, but there are many things people can do to stay safe and prevent injuries.
Make a difference - spread the word about ways to reduce the risk of injuries. Encourage communities, workplaces, families, and individuals to identify and report safety hazards.
Immunizations (also called shots or vaccines) help prevent dangerous and sometimes deadly diseases. Immunization isn't just for kids - to stay protected against serious illnesses like the flu, measles, and pneumonia, adults need to get vaccinated, too.
