I add new videos to my Teaching Videos site on a regular basis, using a number of Youtube subscriptions to find useful videos (as well as videos shared on Twitter and in my RSS subscriptions). One Youtube channel that I particularly enjoy checking is for Steve Spangler Science.

Older kids need a few new immunizations starting at age 11, including a shot to guard against the worrisome resurgence of whooping cough. And for the first time this year, 16-year-olds are supposed to get a booster shot, too, for a scary type of meningitis.
Many slip through the cracks. One reason: Schools don’t require adolescents to comply with a list of national vaccine recommendations like they do kindergarteners.
Another reason: “Kids this age go to the doctor much less,” says Dr. M
