The Importance of Flu and COVID Vaccines in Southside ISD

Southside ISD is organizing a free Flu and COVID vaccine clinic in collaboration with the office of San Antonio City District 3 Councilwoman Phyllis Viagran. The clinic will take place on Wednesday, September 27 from 3pm-7pm at Menchaca Early Childhood Center. This clinic offers an opportunity for students, parents, and community members to protect themselves and others by getting vaccinated against the flu and COVID-19.

Metro Health nurses will be on site to administer the vaccines to individuals aged six months and older. This initiative aims to ensure that the Southside ISD community remains healthy and safe during the ongoing pandemic. Vaccines are an effective way to lower the risk of contracting and spreading infectious diseases.

Getting vaccinated against the flu is especially crucial as we approach flu season. Influenza, or the flu, is a highly contagious respiratory illness that can cause severe illness and even death in vulnerable populations such as the elderly, young children, and individuals with weakened immune systems. By receiving the flu vaccine, individuals can protect themselves and reduce the transmission of the virus within their community.

In addition to the flu vaccine, the clinic will also offer the COVID-19 vaccine. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on communities worldwide, and vaccination is a vital tool in controlling the spread of the virus. By getting vaccinated, individuals can help protect themselves and others from severe illness, hospitalization, and long-term complications associated with COVID-19.

Participating in the free Flu and COVID vaccine clinic is an excellent opportunity to take proactive measures to safeguard one’s health and the health of the Southside ISD community. Vaccines are a crucial tool in preventing and controlling the spread of infectious diseases. Let us work together to build a healthier and safer future.
