    August Sunshine

    Health observances for August include National Breastfeeding Month and National Immunization Awareness Month.

    Did you know many Tarrant County facilities have rooms specfically for mothers who want to breastfeed their babies?  You can find out more about this and other related information on our Breastfeeding Works webpage.

    Also in August, Tarrant County Public Health partners with the Immunization Collaboration of Tarrant County, to provide low-cost back-to-school immunizations at various locations throughout the county, as well as at most Tarrant County Public Health Center.  Our calendar above, and the August Immunization Events page have all the details.

    While summertime continues to be hot and wet from occasional rains, Tarrant County Public Health urges residents to be alert regarding heat-related injuries and know how to avoid them when it's hot as heck, and to keep areas around their homes free of standing water. This short video shows how to Eliminate Mosquito Breeding Sites around the home.
