Residents reminded to get their flu shot
The City of San Antonio’s Metropolitan Health Department recommends all adults and children older than 6 months see their primary care physician to get immunized against influenza. Flu vaccines are 70 to 90 percent effective. It is equally important to cover your cough or sneeze, and wash your hands. For those who do not have a provider, flu vaccinations are available weekdays at Metro Health clinics. Appointments can be scheduled at (210) 207-8894. Remember, getting immunized is the best way to prevent the flu and its spread to others.
