Flu season is here and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) urges everyone ages six months and older to get their flu vaccine, ideally before the end of October. Getting vaccinated is the best way to protect yourself, your loved ones, and the community.

“We continue to see hospitalizations for both adults and children from COVID-19, as well as other respiratory illnesses, including RSV,” said Dr. Rachel Herlihy, state epidemiologist. “The last thing we want is to further stress our health care system and providers right now, especially when it’s as easily preventable as flu.”
