ice and community settings. Most pharmacies and local health departments have a supply of the vaccine on hand. In addition, many organizations, including churches and community centers, offer walk-in immunization clinics at specific dates and times. 

"Public health departments are 'ground zero' when it comes to flu.  We track who is getting it, and how quickly it is spreading," said Zachary Thompson, Director of Public Health for Dallas County. "We hate to see anyone get the flu.  And we are doing everything we can to encourage more people to get vaccinated. People need to know that it is not too late.  Here in Texas, flu season hits its peak in December, January and February, and cases are reported all the way through the spring," concluded Thompson. 

According to the Trust for America's Health, an estimated:

  • One in five Americans will get the flu this year;
  • Anywhere from 3,000 – 49,000 individuals will die from a flu-related illness; more than 200,000 will be hospitalized;
  • Every flu shot saves $3.40 in direct medical expenses, and $5.40 in indirect expenses such as missed work;
  • The flu costs more than $10 billion in direct medical expenses and $16 billion in lost earnings.
