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.

Public Health

Public Health is the first line of defense in maintaining and improving the public’s health status.

A productive, economically sound society relies on a safe, healthy population. Since its inception in the 1950s, Tarrant County Public Health (TCPH) has been a valuable local resource by providing services aimed at promoting, achieving and maintaining a healthy standard of living to all Tarrant County residents. With a client base and scope of services as diverse as the county's population, a dedicated staff of more than 380 public health professionals and annual funding resources totaling approximately $58 million, TCPH services truly touch everyone, every day, everywhere.
