County encourages community members to get flu shot, offers walk-in clinics during October

Contact: Rebecca Larson, Deputy Director of Public Health, 970-328-9820, rebecca.larson@eaglecounty.us      

Oct. 5, 2018 – As flu season approaches, everyone aged six months and older is encouraged to get the flu vaccine to protect themselves and the community from the flu. Influenza cases typically increase in Eagle County with the influx in visitors in November. It takes about two weeks for the flu shot to provide full protection.

The vaccine 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 vaccinefinder.org/.

Eagle County Public Health & Environment is also offering the flu vaccine at walk-in clinics during the month of October. The price of the vaccine at a walk-in clinic is $25 for adults; the cost for children will vary based on eligibility. No child will be denied the flu vaccine due to the inability to pay.

Walk-in flu clinics are available at the following times and locations:

Eagle, 551 Broadway, 970-328-8840
Mondays from 9 a.m. to noon, and from 1 to 4 p.m.
Wednesdays from 8:15 a.m. to noon, and from 1 to 4 p.m.

Avon, 100 W. Beaver Creek Blvd. Suite 107, 970-328-9813
Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to noon, and from 1 to 4 p.m.
