All community members are encouraged to get vaccinated against the flu. According to Eagle County Public Health Director Jennifer Ludwig, flu shots are critical to keeping families and communities healthy.

“Eagle County Public Health and many health care offices, clinics and pharmacies are already offering the vaccine,” she said. “So don’t wait, get your vaccination now to protect yourself and your family against the flu.”

Guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control indicate that everyone 6 months and older should get vaccinated for the seasonal flu every year. Most health insurance plans cover the cost of vaccination at a regular clinic, provider office or pharmacy.
