City offering flood resources, free shots

Friday, May 29, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

Because flood cleanup can increase the risk of wounds, it’s important to ensure you’re up-to-date with tetanus vaccinations before embarking on cleanup. To help with that, the Austin/Travis County Health and Human Services Department’s Shots for Tots/Big Shots clinics are offering free Td/Tdap vaccines for anyone affected by or assisting with cleanup. Adults need a tetanus booster every 10 years. The clinics are open Monday through Friday and the first and third Saturdays of each month. The Far South Clinic is located at 405 West Stassney Lane, 78745. The St. John Community Center Clinic is located at 7500 Blessing Ave., 78752. Appointments are required and can be made by calling 512-972-5520. Additionally, the city has launched an online flood assistance center for impacted residents, property owners and businesses, and has created a consolidated list of volunteer and donation opportunities, which can be found here.
