Saturday Morning Flu Vaccine Clinics

We will be holding Saturday morning flu vaccine clinics (by appointment only) in October and November. Our next flu vaccine clinic is Saturday, November 5,  from 8 – 11 am at the following office locations:

Aurora Office:   I-225 Medical & Business Plaza, 1300 S. Potomac Street, Suite #156 Aurora, CO 80012

Stapleton Office:  Central Park Professional Condominiums, 2373 Central Park Boulevard, Suite #202 Denver, CO 80238 

ALL FLU VACCINE CLINICS ARE BY APPOINTMENT ONLY.  Please call our Patient Care Line at 303-699-6200 to schedule an appointment at your earliest convenience, as appointment slots fill quickly.  

The Centers for Disease Control and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend a seasonal flu vaccine for EVERYONE over 6 months of age. The flu vaccine is especially important for children under 5 years of age, those with certain chronic health conditions, and close contacts of children younger than 5 years of age.  Children younger than 9 years of age may need two doses to be protected against the flu.  This year the Centers for Disease Control and the American Academy of Pediatrics only recommend the injected form of flu vaccine—the “flu shot.” New research shows that the flu shot provided significantly better protection in recent flu seasons compared to the nasal spray vaccine.  Learn more in the link below:
