(We are encouraging everyone to get their flu vaccination. With both COVID & FLU being potentially deadly, we know the flu vaccine works and would hate for someone to have to suffer from both at the same time. Flu shots are available at many places, including the Bowie County Health Clinic at 902 W. 12th in Texarkana, Texas. Don’t let COVID fatigue get the best of you, please continue to practice social distancing and the use of a mask to cover your nose and mouth.)
