Despite a nationwide shortage last year, the flu vaccine is now available in East Texas for anyone who needs it.
The Angelina County & Cities Health District gave out about a hundred flu shots Wednesday. The shots are no longer only for folks most at risk for the virus. The clinic has about 300 vaccinations left.
This is the time of year most people catch the flu bug. It's not too late to get protected.
Sharon Shaw says, "The CDC has ranked Texas as widespread with the flu, which means that there's quite a few cases spread throughout the state. We have seen quite a bit in Angelina County, so it's not too late to have your flu vaccine."
Flu shots at the Angelina County & Cities Health District cost $10.
