Immunizations are important components of adult health care.
You might need to complete your childhood immunizations or obtain recommended new vaccinations or boosters. It is very helpful for you to obtain and bring a copy of your immunization record to your first appointment at UHS, and to keep careful records of any injections received during your time at UC Berkeley.
When it comes to making decisions about sex and sexuality, the best place to start is at the beginning: getting informed about the basics of sexual health, and using this knowledge as a foundation from which you can start to build your own definition of what healthy sexuality means to you.
While learning about healthy sexuality may start with learning the basics about sex and sexual health, it should also include getting informed about your own status--by getting tested.
Half of all sexually active people will get an STI by the age of 25, and nearly half of all pregnancies are unplanned. And even though many STIs are treatable--or even curable!--if caught early on, most people with an STI don't have any symptoms at all, which means the infections can become more serious, and can continue to spread to new partners.
