Flu Widespread in Texas

The flu is classified as widespread now in Texas since a lab has confirmed flu cases in 10 out of 11 health regions across the state.

Remember, there's still time to get a flu shot and since the flu vaccine takes two weeks to build protection in your system that may be just what you need before flu season peaks in late January, early February.

Again, shots are only available now through private clinics or doctors offices. However, Flumist, a nasal spray, is widely available. Just remember that since it contains a live weakened flu virus, it can only be given to healthy individuals from age five to 49.
