Influenza Information 

ENGLISH:"Flu season is just around the corner in Colorado! There is no way to predict in advance how severe flu activity will be so prevention is the best strategy to stay healthy. The single best way to avoid getting influenza is to get vaccinated each year. Annual influenza vaccination is recommended for all persons aged 6 months and older, who do not have a contraindication to the vaccine. Most health insurance companies (including Medicaid) cover the cost of getting a flu vaccine so families with health insurance can go to your in-network health care provider to receive a vaccine at no cost.  Many pharmacies will bill your insurance and not charge a fee for flu vaccine (check with your local pharmacy). If you are uninsured, or your insurance won't cover vaccines, or you have Medicaid or Child Health Plan Plus (CHP+), you can call Tri-County Health Department at 303-451-0123 to be vaccinated in one of their clinics. You can also visit http://flushot.healthmap.org/ to find flu shot clinics near you."

How to Avoid Double Dosing on Medicines this Season
Cold and flu season has returned like clockwork. As you hit the over-the-counter aisle and prepare to combat runny noses and sore throats, remember to double check medicine labels so you don't accidentally double up on medicines containing acetaminophen. Acetaminophen is a common drug ingredient-more than 50 million Americans use it weekly to treat pain, fever, and cold and flu symptoms. It's safe and effective when used as directed, but taking more than directed is an overdose and can lead to liver damage. Learn more about avoiding double dosing at KnowYourDose.org
