With flu season upon us, now is the time to schedule your annual flu shot to help protect against seasonal influenza.
September and October are the ideal time to get your flu shot. Several types of the flu vaccine are available, and vary based on your age.
Schedule your flu shot today through UCHealth My Health Connection or another healthcare provider, or find a flu vaccine near you.
Flu shots are available in limited supply though CU Anschutz Campus Community Health by appointment only.
You can get a flu vaccine at the same time as a COVID-19 vaccine, if your provider offers this option. There is no need to space them apart.
Staying up to date on COVID-19 vaccinations means getting the most recent booster recommended for you, in addition to the primary series.
Updated COVID-19 boosters, or bivalent boosters, are now available to everyone age 12 and older. The updated boosters protect against the original COVID-19 strain, while also offering better protection against the omicron variant.
Get your updated booster today if it has been at least two months since your last booster or primary dose. Once you obtain an updated COVID-19 booster, please add your booster information to the CU Anschutz vaccine verification system using the new bivalent selections.
COVID-19 boosters are available at area locations, including large community vaccination sites, pharmacies and healthcare providers. You can also schedule at UCHealth locations using My Health Connection.
Also need your flu shot? You can get your annual influenza vaccine at the same time as your COVID-19 booster, if your provider offers this option. Ask about scheduling both in one visit.
Hear from our experts about the bivalent booster in the CU Anschutz newsroom.
Ensure you are aware of current campus COVID-19 protocols and safety measures.
