Fight the flu

Flu vaccinations are included, at no additional cost, with checkups at Denver Harbor Family Health Center.

Flu vaccines are also free to patients who have already had a checkup this year. Call to schedule a nurse visit. 

Everyone 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine every season. Flu vaccine can reduce flu illnesses, doctors’ visits, hospitalizations and has been shown to be life-saving. Fight the flu and get vaccinated!

Will a flu vaccine protect me against COVID-19?

No. Flu vaccines do not protect against COVID-19. Flu vaccination reduces the risk of flu illness, hospitalization and death in addition to  other important benefits.

Likewise, getting a COVID-19 vaccine is the best protection against COVID-19, but those vaccines do not protect against flu. Visit the CDC’s Frequently Asked Questions page for information about COVID-19 vaccinations.

Can I get a COVID-19 vaccine and flu vaccine during the same visit?

Yes, you can get a COVID-19 vaccine and a flu vaccine at the same time. If you have concerns about getting both vaccines at the same time, you should speak with a health care provider.

What to do if you think you or someone in your family has the flu

If think you or your children have the flu, make an appointment to see a doctor at the clinic or online through telehealth. This is especially important for pregnant women, young children, and people over 65. New patients are always welcome at Vecino Health Centers.
