2020 FLU SHOT CLINICS FAQS
Q: Why are you having a drive-through and walk-up clinic?
A. DCMH and the Delta County Health Department wanted to give community members multiple accessible options for receiving their flu vaccinations this year. For those more comfortable driving through to receive their vaccine, they can attend the flu shot clinic at Delta Hospital and those that prefer to walk-through can attend the Delta County Health Department’s clinic. For more information, read the full press release here.
Q: What do I need to bring with me to the flu vaccination clinics?
A. You will need to bring a valid photo ID and your insurance card.
Q: Do I have to wear a mask?
A. Masks are encouraged for anyone looking to receive the flu vaccination shot at both the drive-through and walk-through clinics.
Q: What age do you have to be for the flu shot clinics?
A. The drive-through DCMH clinic is offering regular dose flu shots for ages 18 and older as well as the high dose flu shot for ages 65 and older.
If you’re a self-pay or Medicaid patient under the age of 18, you can obtain a free flu vaccination by visiting the Delta County Health Department’s walk-through flu shot clinic or by visiting the DCMH Family Medicine Clinic located at 555 Meeker Street in Delta or the DCMH West Elk Clinic in Hotchkiss located at 230 Hotchkiss Avenue in Hotchkiss.
The Delta County Health Department walk-through flu clinic is offering regular dose flu shots for ages seven and older and the high dose flu shot for ages 65 and older.
Q: Why should I get my annual flu shot vaccination?
A. The single best way to protect against the flu is to get a flu shot each year. An annual flu shot can reduce illnesses in the community, decrease the time missed at work and school, and prevent flu-related hospitalizations and deaths.
Q: When is the best time to receive the flu shot vaccination?
A. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website, getting a flu vaccine will be more important than ever this year. The CDC recommends that all people six months and older get a yearly flu vaccine. They also suggest that September and October are the best times to get vaccinated. For older adults specifically, July and August are too early because of the likelihood of reduced protection later in the flu season.
Q: How do I get a copy of my records?
A. You can get a copy for your records at the time of the flu clinics by taking a photo of the flu vaccination form with your cellular device. After two weeks you will be able to receive a copy of your immunization records from your DCMH primary care provider or contact the DCMH Medical Records Department at 970.874.6433. You can also obtain your records by contacting the Delta County Health Department at 970-874-2165.
