APH urges public to get flu shots

Thursday, November 14, 2019 by Tai Moses

Austin Public Health wants the public to know it’s not too late to get a flu vaccination, and with flu activity across Travis County increasing, getting a flu shot now could save you – and your family, friends and co-workers – a lot of misery. As Interim Health Authority Dr. Mark Escott said in an announcement, “It is not just about you. It is about those around you who are at greater risk.” Uninsured adults and children who are uninsured or are Medicaid recipients can get flu shots at APH’s Shots for Tots/Big Shots clinic by appointment at (512) 972-5520. Those with health insurance can visit to find locations near them. For updates on flu activity in Austin and Travis County as well as information about prevention, visit
