LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The City of Lubbock Health Department wants to help protect high risk adults from seasonal flu. This Tuesday they will hold an immunization clinic for those adults who fall into that high risk category.

That includes pregnant women, people 50-years-old or older, those with chronic medical conditions, people who live in nursing homes or a long term care facility, and those who live with or care for someone who is at high risk for complications from flu. The health department will hold the clinic in their auditorium at 19th and Texas from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Tuesday. The cost is $20.00.  They will not vaccinate children at this time.

The Texas Department of State Health Services established a new web site for flu updates.  You can go there for all the latest information from the state on both the seasonal and H1N1 flu viruses.  (Click Here) to visit the states flu web site.
