Three area nursing homes secure a limited amount of the vaccine in the fight to provide free flu shots for elderly local area residents 65 and above in response to the recent flu outbreak across Texas which has seen 19 related deaths in the state so far

"We are concerned for the health and well being of our seniors whether or not they are currently a resident of our facility," stated David Henton, Administrator at the Colonial Manor. With 25 states reporting moderate to high flu activity, this year's strain is expected to be particularly deadly and citizens are advised to get flu vaccinations as soon as possible.

I hope Garland area residents come out for our free flu shot event, as the best defense against H1N1 is to be vaccinated early."
