Texas Department of State Health Services urges everyone six months old and older to get vaccinated against the flu. It is particularly important for pregnant women, young children, older adults and people with chronic health conditions, because people in those groups are at a greater risk of severe complications if they do get the flu. The flu season lasts until mid-May You can get your flu shot at most local pharmacies, the local health department, or your private physician.
