The Laredo Health Department is urging the public to remain vigilant as we enter the end of peak respiratory illness season. Even though the flu level in the community has decreased, with over 500 reported cases in the city, it’s crucial to continue practicing preventive care by staying up-to-date on vaccinations.

Jaime Perez from Laredo Health emphasizes the importance of vaccination in avoiding illness. The RSV vaccine is available for children ages 0 to 24 months until the end of the month for a $10 administration fee. Additionally, both adults and children can get their flu vaccine until June 30th.

Protect your health and well-being during this time by getting vaccinated. If you have any questions or need more information about vaccines, contact 956-727-6966. Stay informed for more news headlines on KGNS’s website.
