The 2014-2015 Flu Season is almost here. Make sure to get flu shots for you and your family.

Jefferson County Public Health recommends everyone 6 months and older get a flu vaccine each year, preferably in the fall before the U.S. flu season begins. Flu season can begin as early as October and can last as late as April or May. Flu vaccination is the best way to prevent flu illness this season. Make an appointment by calling JCPH’s clinic appointment line at 303-239-7078. Get more information by visiting our influenza web page. Remember that influenza is a respiratory illness that can cause life-threatening complications. Do your part to stop the flu!
  • Get an annual flu vaccination 
  • Wash hands frequently with soap and water (use anti-bacterial gel if soap and water are not available). 
  • Cover your sneezes and coughs with a tissue or your elbow.
