Get Your Flu Shot at TMA Fall Conference

TMA urges physicians to take the lead in the fight against the flu by getting themselves vaccinated. To make it easy, TMA will offer a flu shot clinic during TMA's Fall Conference. Stop by Baron's Ballroom C at Hyatt Regency Lost Pines between 8 am and 9 am on Saturday, Sept. 24.  

The quadrivalent flu vaccine will be $40, with cash/check collected on site. TMA is providing the flu shot clinic for physician members, their families, and office staff. UnitedHealthcare, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas, and Scott & White insurances will be accepted. 

Reserve your vaccination time slot when you register for the conference. TMA's Council on Health Promotion and Be Wise — ImmunizeSM are cosponsoring the event. 

Be Wise — Immunize also offers these tools you can use to protect yourself, your staff, and your patients this flu season:  

  • Provide flu facts at a glance with TMA's flu infographic (in English and Spanish). Post a copy in your waiting room, download it to your website or Facebook page, or hand out copies. 
  • Remind your employees to get their flu vaccination with this poster to hang in your break room or other areas where your staff gather. TMA supports 100-percent flu vaccination coverage for health care workers. 
  • Use TMA's educational and giveaway items at your Be Wise — Immunize flu shot clinic in October. Oct. 1 is Influenza Awareness Day in Texas, so TMA urges physicians to host a shot clinic sometime that month to improve vaccination coverage statewide. 

To order flu materials or to learn about hosting a shot clinic, contact Tammy Wishard, TMA's outreach coordinator, by email or by phone at (800) 880-1300, ext. 1470, or (512) 370-1470.

TMA launched Be Wise — Immunize in 2004 to increase Texas' immunization rates. Since then, the program has given more than 300,000 shots to Texas children, adolescents, and adults. 

Be Wise – Immunize is a joint initiative led by TMA physicians and medical students, and the TMA Alliance. It is funded in 2016 by TMA Foundation thanks to major gifts from H-E-B and TMF Health Quality Institute, along with generous contributions from physicians and their families. 

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