With the recent hurricanes that are affecting the southeastern United States and the flooding that has occurred within central Texas, NET Health encourages all East Texas residents to remain vigilant and stay prepared for an emergency situation.
When planning ahead for a potential disaster, it is important for families to take into consideration the specific needs of ALL members of your family.
You should also create a Family Emergency Plan, as well as make sure you have all of the supplies and essential items included on the Emergency Supply List, and have a list of community evacuation locations that are listed upon the most recent version of Severe Weather Response Plan.
If your community needs assistance with being prepared before an emergency occurs, then contact our Public Health Emergency Preparedness Department by sending us a message on our Facebook page or by sending an email to ContactUs@netphd.org.
"We have very, very low HPV vaccine completion rates,” says Dr. Li-Yu Mitchell, a member of the NET Health Board of Directors. “We want to catch the students who may have missed getting these shots . . . [because] teenagers and people in their twenties make up the majority of the 14 million new HPV infections each year."
Click the video to learn about the recent vaccine clinic at the UT Tyler College of Pharmacy that was provided our NET Health Immunizations Department, the UT Tyler School of Nursing & the Texas Medical Association.
Teens and young adults who were unable to visit either of these opportunities can come to our
NET Health Immunizations Clinic at 815 North Broadway in Tyler and learn how to receive the HPV vaccine.
