Community members urged to get the flu shot before influx of holiday visitors

Contact: Rebecca Larson, MPH, Public Health & Environment, 970-328-9820 or rebecca.larson@eaglecounty.us

Nov. 19, 2015 – As the upcoming holidays bring an influx of visitors to the area, community members are encouraged to protect themselves from seasonal influenza by getting vaccinated as soon as possible. The flu shot is available from local health care providers, clinics and pharmacies throughout the county and most health insurance plans cover the cost. To locate the nearest flu vaccine, visit flushot.healthmap.org

Eagle County Public Health is offering $14 flu shots to uninsured children and adults, as well as to those covered by Medicaid or an insurance that does not cover the cost of flu vaccine. No one will be turned away due to inability to pay. Eagle County Public Health is also an in-network provider for Rocky Mountain Health Plans and CHP+ and will bill insurance for all covered persons. Contact one of the three Eagle County Public Health locations to schedule an appointment or see below for the walk-in flu clinic schedule:
