With COVID-19 cases on the rise and flu season just around the corner, North Texas doctors are working to battle what some call the “twindemic.”
Doctors at Parkland and UT Southwestern are tapping neighborhood teens in underserved communities to improve flu vaccination rates, saying science can only do so much.
“You can have the perfect vaccine for anything. The science can be 100% right. Doesn’t matter if you don’t reach the community,” says Dr. Kavita Bhavan.
