SAN ANTONIO (September 18, 2019) – The San Antonio Metropolitan Health District (Metro Health) encourages everyone six months and older to get their flu vaccine as early as possible. The best protection against flu is getting a flu vaccine. The Flu vaccine has been shown to save children's lives, prevent serious events associated with chronic lung disease, diabetes and heart disease, and prevent flu-related hospitalizations among working age adults and older adults. Getting vaccinated isn't just about keeping you healthy; it is also about helping protect others around you who may be vulnerable to becoming very sick, such as babies, older adults, and pregnant women.
"Because the flu is unpredictable, it's too soon to know what to expect this Flu season. So don't wait, the time to get vaccinated is right now," said Dr. Anita K Kurian, Assistant Director of Metro Health.

Metro Health's Immunization Program will be providing immunization events across the city to reach as many citizens as possible. Leading the way this flu season is our own San Antonio Mayor, along with City Council persons and their staff.
Metro Health recommends a three-step approach to fight flu:
1. Get a flu vaccine.
2. Wash your hands often and practice good hygiene, and try to avoid close contact with sick people. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
3. If you become sick, limit your contact with others and complete all medication doses prescribed by your doctor.
