Stopping The Flu Is Up To You! Twitter Chat and Campaign

The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) TexasFlu.org campaign and recent Twitter Chat informs the public about the flu and reminds every one of the importance of getting a flu shot and taking everyday actions to prevent illness.

TexasFlu.org includes important information about the current flu season and the latest vaccine options and availability. Users can follow flu activity in Texas by reviewing the DSHS Weekly Flu SurveillanceReport and can find out where the flu vaccine is being offered near them by using the Flu Vaccine Finder. The campaign site also includes downloadable graphics, door hangers, and videos for users to share to help raise awareness about the flu and how to protect themselves and others.

Want to know, what do you do if you or someone you know gets sick with the flu? TexasFlu.org can answer that too!;

DSHS’s recent Twitter Chat highlighted some of the most important flu facts for this and every season.

Visit TexasFlu.org to learn more. And remember, stopping the flu is up to you!
