More Coloradans than ever are remembering to get the flu vaccine

​Protect yourself and your loved ones from flu

It’s especially important to get the flu vaccine to protect against influenza, a serious, sometimes fatal disease. As you work hard to keep yourself and the people around you safe and healthy, take this important step for extra peace of mind during this difficult time.


This could be a particularly bad year to get the flu as hospitals could be strained by COVID-19 patients. Getting the flu and COVID-19 together could expose you to extra health problems. By protecting yourself, you can help prevent the spread to others close to you.


The flu vaccine is the best way to protect against the flu. The vast majority of people who get the flu vaccine have no side effects. Pharmacies, doctors’ offices, and clinics have taken steps to keep you safe when you get vaccines.


Medicare, Medicaid, CHP+, and most private health insurers cover the full cost of the flu vaccine; you don’t have to pay anything at health care provider offices and pharmacies that accept your health plan. If you don’t have health coverage, you can still get the flu vaccine for free at certain health care providers.
