    Disease Control & Prevention

    Disease Control, Prevention

    Part of Tarrant County Public Health's responsibility is to monitor, track, control and prevent the spread of disease in our community.

    Though many diseases are seasonal, the incidence of these diseases vary by year. Occasionally, there are non-endemic diseases (not native) to Tarrant County that are brought into the county in a number of ways.

    Tarrant County Public Health maintains regular surveillance of --and remains alert to-- all disease threats.

     

    Some of these diseases are spread by mosquitoes that are native to North Texas. Visit our Be Mosquito Free web page to learn more.

    Handwashing is a quick and simple "do-it-yourself" vaccine. Check out our Handwashing page for more information.
