It was hard not to notice all the flu shot advertising that popped up across our county in August and the media messaging that followed the next month. Tarrant County Public Health (TCPH) even kicked off September with our annual Stop the Flu campaign press conference. Once again, our good Fort Worth friend, Mayor Betsy Price, rolled up her sleeve alongside us to help spread the word.

June Health Observances

Hello June

June is Men's Health Month and National Safety Month. It is also the start of summer and continues the mosquito-borne illness season.
