The Texas Department of Health and Human Services offers the following statement as a guideline regarding the flu vaccine:
“Flu vaccination recommended as annual flu season kicks off in Texas
October 1 is Influenza Awareness Day in Texas, and the Department of State Health Services recommends eligible Texans protect themselves and their families by getting a flu shot as soon as possible. It takes the body about two weeks to make flu antibodies after vaccine administration, so early vaccination is crucial.”
