Health Department Pushes Flu Shots


The San Angelo-Tom Green County Health Department is offering influenza vaccines, although it has a limited number of adult doses.

Flu vaccines are administered during the Health Department’s weekly immunization clinic on Tuesdays from 8 a.m.-11:30 a.m. and from 1 p.m.-4:30 p.m. in its offices in Suite 9 at 2030 Pulliam St.

Children seeking the flu vaccine must present updated shot records at the time of the visit; adults must do so only if they are receiving other vaccinations. There are no exceptions to this requirement.

Although the clinics are open to walk-ins (no appointments), adults are encouraged to confirm in advance the availability of the vaccine by calling (325) 657-4214.

The cost is $22 for the adult vaccine, which the Health Department purchased as private stock and can be administered to anyone older than 18. The cost is the same for children who qualify for Texas Vaccines for Children, although the $22 fee is per visit; that means a child could be administered other immunizations at the same time at no additional cost. For children, TVFC guidelines are: no health insurance for the child or health insurance does not cover vaccines; eligible for Medicaid; or of American Indian or Alaskan Native descent.

For more information, contact the Health Department at (325) 657-4214.
