Central Texas flu vaccine campaign kicks off

Published on October 16, 2015 under CommunityImpact

The largest in-school influenza immunization campaign in Texas kicked off Oct. 15 with the goal of vaccinating 26,000 students in Central Texas. The “Teach Flu a Lesson” campaign will reach nine districts and 136 elementary and middle schools. Last year, the campaign’s first, 6,500 students were immunized against the flu. This year’s expected total would quadruple last year’s tally. “It’s a major deal because a lot of kids do miss school,” said former University of Texas quarterback Vince Young, who helped kick off the campaign at Pfluger Elementary School in Buda. “It takes away from the kids’ education for one.”
