As flu season approaches, everyone aged six months and older is encouraged to get the flu vaccine to protect themselves and the community from the flu.

Influenza cases typically increase in Eagle County with the influx in visitors beginning in November. It takes about two weeks for the flu shot to provide full protection. 

Eagle County Public Health & Environment is currently offering the flu vaccine. Walk-in flu clinics will be held during the following times:

Eagle, 551 Broadway, 970-328-8840
Mondays, Oct. 28, Nov. 4, Nov. 11 
9 – 11:30 a.m. and 1 – 4 p.m.

Avon, 100 W. Beaver Creek Blvd. Suite 107, 970-328-9813
Thursdays, Oct. 24, Oct. 31, Nov. 7, Nov. 14 
9 – 11:30 a.m. and 1 – 4 p.m.

The price of the vaccine at a walk-in clinic is $25 for adults; the cost for children will vary based on eligibility. No child will be denied the flu vaccine due to an inability to pay. For more information, visit www.eaglecounty.us/flu
