Why Texas is struggling to get the flu vaccine

Texas is grappling with a public health emergency as the virus sweeps through the Lone Star State.

The first cases of the virus have been reported in Texas and the nation’s fourth-largest state.

The state is grappling to get access to the full flu vaccine, but the state’s medical director has said the process could take months. 

Here are five questions and answers about the flu.


How are the flu cases happening?

There have been an estimated 1.5 million confirmed cases in the U.S. and 2.3 million suspected cases, according to the CDC.

That means the total number of confirmed and suspected cases is now around 1.8 million. 

A large portion of the cases have occurred in Texas, which has a larger population than most states. 

According to the Texas Department of State Health Services, there were more than 200,000 people reported as being sickened with the flu in Texas last week. 

The Texas Department for Health Services said the flu is “now the leading cause of hospitalizations and emergency department visits for the United States.”

The Texas Department and the CDC both said the number of people who are being hospitalized is about 50 percent of what it was on Wednesday. 


How many of those people have to get vaccinated?

The flu shot is a two-dose vaccine that contains two different strains of the flu virus.

It can be taken for a maximum of 12 weeks. 

Currently, Texas requires all adults over age 65 to get a flu shot, which is only available through Medicaid.

It’s also important to note that Texas law requires that people over age 21 get a second shot, but there are exceptions. 

So far, the majority of the people who have gotten the flu shot have been healthy adults, according the CDC, so if you have health issues or you’re taking medication, it’s important to get your shots as soon as possible. 


Who is getting the vaccine?

The United States is getting more and more people to get their flu shot.

The number of Americans receiving the flu shots has gone up every year since the start of the pandemic. 

It’s also a reminder that the vaccine is only for the flu, which the U,S.

Department of Health and Human Services calls the most contagious infectious disease in the world. 


Why is there a high percentage of people getting the flu?

Texas is seeing an increase in the number and number of cases of flu, according Texas Gov.

Greg Abbott. 

This is due to the fact that the pandemics are spreading faster than expected, and the population is getting older, he said. 

Abbott said the population has been growing in Texas because of a number of factors, including more people with health issues, fewer people in the workforce, and more access to medical care. 


How do I get vaccinated for the new flu?

You can get a vaccine from the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, which opened on Tuesday, by calling the toll-free number on the Texas health department website, or visiting your local county health department.

There are several locations across the state to pick up the flu jab, but most people should arrive early for the best chance of getting the shot. 

If you have any questions, you can email the Texas department of health at [email protected] or call 1-800-227-4833.

Texas is also looking to expand its flu vaccine eligibility.

There have also been reports of a spike in the flu among students.

Here are some other key points about the virus:The CDC said the current pandemic has the highest death toll, with 1,721 confirmed deaths and 8,054 deaths from the flu so far.

More than 3 million people in America have been vaccinated with the vaccine, and nearly 1.4 million people have received a second dose. 

More than 40 million Americans have been tested for the virus. 

1 in 6 Americans is currently infected with the virus and the flu season has been officially declared in the United State.
