Current Flu Activity in Denver
The 2016-2017 flu (influenza season) is just starting. While flu activity in the City and County of Denver is currently low, Denver Public Health recommends everyone 6 months of age and older get the annual flu vaccine. It takes about two weeks for the vaccine to offer its full protection, so the earlier you vaccinate, the earlier you are protected.
To provide the most effective protection from flu, Denver Public Health is following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) recommendation not to provide FluMist this flu season. When you visit any of the clinics at Denver Public Health, or your primary care provider, please ask for the flu vaccine, the best way to protect you and your family from the flu.
