It's Time to Get Your Annual Flu Shot
Everyone six months and older needs the flu vaccine every year to stay healthy. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,
flu activity in the US is currently low. However, rates usually increase in October making now a good time to protect yourself against the flu by getting
your annual flu shot from your primary care provider or an area drug store. Denver Public Health's Immunization Clinic has flu vaccine available, and can offer FluMist for age-appropriate patients. Please call (303) 602-3520 for more information.
Information about Ebola
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently confirmed the first travel-associated case of Ebola diagnosed in the U.S.
We are saddened to learn of the patient's passing, and our thoughts are with his friends and family.
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment is following CDC guidance in monitoring for Ebola in Colorado, and we are collaborating with both organizations to be prepared if a case should present in Denver.
To date, there have been no cases of Ebola in Colorado.
Denver Public Health encourages residents and visitors to become more familiar with Ebola by
reading our Ebola fact sheet. More information about Ebola is available from the CDC.
Council District Level Health Reports
Denver Public Health and Denver Environmental Health released reports on the health of Denver’s residents within each City Council district. These reports document substantial disparities in a variety of health outcomes, such as premature death, teen birth, availability of health insurance, and use of tobacco. We hope these district-level reports help policy-makers and citizens work toward eliminating health disparities within Denver.
