Pertussis (Whooping Cough)


West Nile Virus


Bacterial Meningitis

Senate Bill 31, passed by the Texas Legislature in the Fall of 2001, requires that school districts provide the following information to all parents in the district.   Meningitis is most commonly spread in the college dormitories, due to close living arrangements, but the legislature felt it was important for all parents to be made aware of the disease.  Colleges now require students to provide proof of having had the Meningitis vaccine within the last 5 years.   Please click on the link for more informtion.

 *  Flu Facts

 

Dial 2-1-1 for Flu Advice
You can now dial 2-1-1 to receive over-the-phone medical guidance about what you should do if you or a family member have flu symptoms.

The state’s 2-1-1 health information helpline is now staffed with medical professionals who can provide information about managing flu symptoms and advice on when to seek medical care from a physician or emergency room.

This will help you make informed decisions about how to care for yourself and your family. The guidance is not intended to replace specific instructions people receive from their physicians.

The 2-1-1 staff also can provide general flu information and vaccine availability information for individuals and health care providers. Calls are answered round-the-clock. Callers are instructed to choose a language and then press “6” for flu information and guidance.

Basic flu symptoms include fever, cough and sore throat that usually come on suddenly. Most cases are relatively mild to moderate and do not need emergency treatment. Most people who have H1N1 flu or seasonal flu just need appropriate fluid intake, fever-reducing medication, rest and careful monitoring.

People with underlying health conditions who think they have the flu should contact their health care provider.
