Texans can now dial 2-1-1 to receive over-the-phone medical guidance about what they should do if they or a family member has 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.

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.

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