Dallas County Starts Flu Vaccination Campaign
Dallas County Health and Human Services kicked off its flu vaccination campaign this morning with a press conference.
DCHHS Director Zachary Thompson announced that county clinics will begin administering the seasonal flu vaccine Monday. The vaccine will first be available for adults.
The flu vaccine is not required for school enrollment, but is recommended for all eligible people per the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention guidelines as the best means of flu prevention.
The seasonal flu vaccine does not protect against the H1N1 virus.
The immunization clinic, located in the DCHHS building on the first floor, is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday – Friday.
