    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.
