South Texas Veterans Health Care System (STVHCS)
Veterans and employees of the South Texas Veterans Health Care System can now receive their flu shots. Qualified staff are available Monday through Friday from 8 – 10 a.m. at the CLC or SCIC entrances.
Aside from preventing you from developing the flu, there is another serious reason to get the vaccine. According to the CDC, in 2009 there were more than 12,000 flu related deaths in the United States, many of those from the H1N1 flu. This flu year, the vaccine will protect you from the 2009 H1N1 strain and two others strains, the H3N2 and influenza B viruses. It takes about two weeks after you receive the vaccination for your body to begin the protection.
