Antibiotics save millions of lives. Infectious bacterial diseases that were once deadly are now treatable with antibiotics. Unfortunately, 30 percent of antibiotic prescriptions are unnecessary and potentially dangerous. Antibiotics can cause side-effects ranging from mild to severe. Antibiotic resistance is a serious public health issue. Each year around 2 million illnesses and 23,000 deaths are caused by antibiotic resistant infections in the US.

Join the CDC for this session of Public Health Grand Rounds.
