One out of five Texans, young and old, will get the flu this year. Many end up in the hospital, and some die. The best way to prevent the flu, or influenza, is an annual vaccination. TMA’s Be Wise — ImmunizeSM supports a yearly vaccination for everyone older than 6 months of age. Be Wise has The Facts About Flu Immunization handout to educate patients and posters to encourage health care workers to get vaccinated.
Be Wise — Immunize is a joint initiative led by TMA physicians and the TMA Alliance, funded by the TMA Foundation through generous grants from H-E-B, TMF Health Quality Institute, and Permian Basin Youth Chavarim, along with gifts from physicians and their families.
