Dallas County clinics distribute flu vaccines
Last year not everyone in the Dallas County got the flu vaccine as it was tough to come by last year but this year it will no longer be the same.
On Monday, flu shots started getting distributed by health officials in Dallas County clinics. Everyone over six months old is supposed to take flu jab this year.
H1N1 protection is also given by the shot and some children may require two doses.
The vaccine is being provided mainly at Dallas County's main clinic which is located off Stemmons Freeway just north of Wycliff from 8 a. m. to 4 p. m. Monday through Friday. Adults would need to dish out $20 for a vaccine and $5 for children.
Vaccination plans of other counties are yet to be announced but this time health officials are confident that they are prepared to battle the upcoming influenza season.
Northern Health Department spokesperson Emily Greshman Wherle said, "Last year 80 million people received the H1N1 or swine flu vaccine."
Wherle added that 10 to 14 days are needed to get the full effect of a vaccine and protection lasts up to one year.
She added, "But you don't have to wait a year to get another shot. Say, if you got one in January you still can get one now."
