[ARCHIVED] Flu Shots Available at Garland Public Health Clinic

Flu shots are available at the Garland Public Health Clinic, 206 Carver St.

The Garland Public Health Clinic, 206 Carver St., has received its first shipment of vaccine for the 2019-20 flu season. Flu shots are available from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. weekdays for adults and children who are insured. Call 972-205-3370 for pricing and to learn what insurance plans are accepted.

The best time to get prepared for the flu season is now. The national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone 6 months of age and older get a flu vaccine as soon as it is available.

An annual vaccination is the best way to reduce the chances of getting and spreading seasonal flu. When more people get vaccinated, less flu can spread throughout the community. Because it takes about two weeks after vaccination for the antibodies that protect against the flu to develop, it is best to get vaccinated before influenza begins spreading in their community.

Vaccination is particularly important for people who are at high risk of serious complications from influenza. Young children, senior adults, pregnant women and people with certain chronic medical conditions are among the high-risk category. They face serious flu complications, possible hospitalization and, sometimes, death.

Employers who want to host an on-site flu vaccination clinic can call 972-205-3370 for information.

Clinic officials expect a shipment of low-cost flu vaccine for children without insurance in the coming weeks. Cost will be $14 per dose for ages 18 and younger. High dose flu vaccines for seniors will also arrive soon. Check the Garland Public Health Department page at to monitor progress on the arrival of the vaccine.
