JCPH announces times and dates for free flu shots

Eight clinics to be held over next two months

Posted

Jefferson County Public Health has announced the dates and locations of several free flu clinics that it will put on around the county over the next few months.

The agency stated in a press release that it is particularly important for county residents to get a flu shot this year to protect from the compounding health problems of flu and COVID-19.

Having the flu and COVID-19 at the same time could make you more susceptible to serious complications,” according to the JCPH. “While no one ever wants to be hospitalized, hospitalization during the COVID-19 pandemic means facilities may be strained for resources and equipment, as well as have stricter visitation guidelines.”

Flu shots are available now at many health care providers, pharmacies and clinics, including the JCPH clinic at 645 Parfet Street in Lakewood. Appointments at JCPH are available every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. by calling 303-239-7078. In addition to the flu vaccine, all childhood vaccines are available, and appointments are often available for same or next day.

To get a flu vaccine, contact your health care provider’s office, local public health agency or you can find local vaccine providers at vaccineFinder.org. For more information on influenza in Colorado, visit fluvaxcolorado.org.
