    As relatively new residents of North Texas, my family and I are learning to adjust to the summertime heat. I also have two small children, so whenever I hear of any child left in a car on a hot day, my heart breaks.

    Health Observances


    Did you know December is Safe Toys and Gifts Month? Also among December's health observances are World AIDS Day, National Influenza Vaccination Week and National Handwashing Awareness Week.

    Since flu season has started and has yet to peak, Tarrant County Public Health urges all to get a flu shot right away, rather than waiting until you're sick. It takes about two week for the vaccine to become effective once it's in your system, so it's smart to get it before you need it. Besides all of TCPH's public health centers, flu shots are available at many local stores and pharmacies.

    Here's wishing you a safe and healthy holiday!
