Vaccinations Available at Fall Conference

Do you need a flu or Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis) vaccination? If so, you can get one or both at TMA's Fall Conference.

Physicians and their families, medical students, and office staff can get a vaccination from 7:30 to 8:30 am on Saturday, Oct. 19. The event is sponsored by TMA's Committee on Infectious Diseases and TMA's Be Wise — ImmunizeSM program. 

The cost for the flu shorts will be $27; for FluMist, $40; and for Tdap shots, $80. Be sure to reserve your vaccination when you register for TMA's Fall Conference.

TMA physician leaders and staff are putting together the agenda for the conference. It tentatively calls for updates on what's happening on important health care-related issues in Congress, a review of TMA's success in the 2013 session of the legislature, and a session on TMA's new Physician Services Organization for Patient Care 

TMA councils, boards, committees, and sections will meet during the conference.

Book your hotel reservation online by Sept. 26 to receive a discounted room rate.

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 and TMF Health Quality Institute. Since the program began in 2004, more than 235,000 vaccinations have been given to Texas children, adolescents, and adults.

Be Wise — Immunize is a service mark of the Texas Medical Association.
