Annual flu vaccinations are recommended for everyone age 6 months and older.

There is no cost for Denver Health Medical Plan members to get a flu vaccine when you present your member ID card. Choose where you get your flu vaccine:

  • If you have a visit scheduled with your doctor, you can get your flu vaccine at that time.
  • If you are a current Denver Health patient, you can schedule a flu vaccine only appointment at Denver Health by calling 303-436-4949.
  • Visit any retail pharmacy* that offers the flu vaccine, such as Walgreens, King Soopers or Target. Be sure to go to the pharmacy counter (not an in-store clinic).

*Some pharmacies have age limitations for children; check with your pharmacy first. Only certain types of flu vaccines are covered at $0.
