The Texas Department of State Health Services is urging everyone over 6 months old to get a dose of seasonal flu vaccine as soon as possible.
“Even if you had a flu shot during the last flu season, it’s time to get vaccinated again,” said Dr. David Lakey, DSHS commissioner. “The protection provided by the vaccine decreases over time, so everyone needs to be immunized each year.”
