JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. (KDVR) – Flu season is just around the corner, and combined with the threat from COVID-19 health officials are preaching extra vigilance.

“Having the flu and COVID-19 at the same time could make you more susceptible to serious complications, and while no one ever wants to be hospitalized, hospitalization during the novel coronavirus pandemic means facilities may be strained for resources and equipment, as well as have stricter visitation guidelines,” a release from Jefferson County Public Health said.

With that in mind, Jefferson County Public Health has announced nine flu vaccination clinics that will be held between now and mid-December.
