-- How Will You Use This Story? --


(OPEN):
GOLF-PROFESSIONAL, JIM FURYK ["FYUR-ICK"], HAS HAD HIS COACH AND FATHER, MIKE, BY HIS SIDE--THROUGHOUT HIS IMPRESSIVE CAREER.  BUT, NOW THAT MIKE'S GETTING OLDER, JIM IS ENCOURAGING HIM TO BE MORE PROACTIVE--WHEN IT COMES TO HIS HEALTH...

(JIM FURYK):
"
I WOULDN'T BE NEAR THE GOLFER--OR MAN--[THAT] I AM TODAY WITHOUT MY DAD.  AND NOW, IT'S TIME FOR ME TO COACH HIM, ABOUT TAKING PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR HIS HEALTH.  JUST LIKE OVERCOMING THE HAZARDS ALONG A GOLF-COURSE, UNDERSTANDING YOUR RISK FOR POTENTIALLY SERIOUS INFECTIOUS-DISEASES--LIKE 'PNEUMOCOCCAL PNEUMONIA'--CAN HELP YOU STAY ON-COURSE."

(BRIDGE):
"
PNEUMOCOCCAL PNEUMONIA" IS A POTENTIALLY SERIOUS AND LIFE-THREATENING ILLNESS.  EVEN HEALTHY ADULTS OVER 65 ARE AT INCREASED RISK--BECAUSE OUR IMMUNE-SYSTEM NATURALLY WEAKENS WITH AGE...

(JIM FURYK):
"
VACCINES AREN'T JUST FOR KIDS:  AS YOU AND YOUR PARENTS AGE, CONSIDER THE IMPORTANCE OF ADULT-VACCINATION.  AND, IF YOU'RE 65 OR OLDER, SPEAK WITH A DOCTOR OR PHARMACIST--TO MAKE SURE [THAT] YOU'RE UP-TO-DATE, ON 'C-D-C'-RECOMMENDED VACCINES."
