October is known for pumpkin spice lattes, football, Halloween and...flu shots?!
That's right! If you haven't already received your flu shot, do so now to protect yourself during flu season! Tarrant County has an abundance of locations to help protect you against flu season!
Our Spring Teen Project and our August Back-to-School Vaccine Events are over and the numbers are in! Below is our 2018 Vaccine Events Report.
We are so thankful to First Grandmothers' Club, Tarrant County Medical Society Alliance Foundation, and The Ellermeyer Family Charitable Fund of the North Texas Giving Day for sponsoring a combined $16,848 in vaccine administration fees.

The long days of summer have us enjoying time off of school, camps, and vacations. But the school year is right around the corner. August will be spent stocking up on school supplies, but there is an essential step you can do now to get prepared – vaccinations.
Think vaccines are just for children? Think again! Vaccines protect adults from 14 serious, possibly deadly, diseases. Besides an annual flu shot, adults should receive a tetanus shot every 10 years. There are additional vaccines needed depending on age, job, health conditions, travel, lifestyle and vaccination history.
ICTC provides all adult vaccines for adults with no insurance for $8 each dose at our events. If you have your shot record, remember to bring it with you!
