Flu season is in full swing in our North Texas community! Local health authorities are reporting a nearly 34% influenza positivity test rate in our local ER's and doctor's offices.

There is still time and opportunity to get your flu shot.

You may also go to the Texas Department of State Health Services and look under Flu Vaccine Finder for a location near you http://www.dshs.state.tx.us/txflu/flu-locator.shtm

The number one action against the spread of (Influenza) disease is...HAND WASHING!
