It is important you do not receive the flu shot too early. Since the influenza virus does not reach the South Texas region until later in the year, it is medically best to receive your flu shot the latter part of October or first part of November. Let your HealthTexas physician minimize the risk and impact of influenza by receiving your flu shot early.
