Flu Immunization Program

Colorado Visiting Nurse Association held nearly 500 clinics in private and public locations in Denver and Colorado Springs in 2014. Flu vaccinations are provided to anyone over the age of 6 months. All Wellness Services and Vaccines are administered by an experienced Registered Nurse.

Prevention is better than cure when it comes to any illness, and flu is no exception. You play an important role in protecting public health and your workforce. Each year, on average, 5-20% of the U.S. population gets the flu, tens of thousands are hospitalized and thousands die from flu-related illnesses.

The costs are an estimated $10.4 billion a year in direct medical expenses and an additional $16.3 billion lost in earnings annually.

Why host an on-site flu clinic?

Because you’ll save lives, protect the community, protect your workforce, and they are:

  • Convenient: Our nurses come to your office or event at the time you select.
  • Professional: All VNA Wellness nurses are Registered Nurses.
  • Consultative: VNA nurses will provide education and counseling for participants.

  • Flexible Clinic Sizes: We can accommodate clinics for 10 to 5,000 participants.
  • Vouchers: Clinic hosts may provide vouchers for participants unable to attend their scheduled clinic. Vouchers may be redeemed at the VNA or other Flu Clinics.

People at High Risk of Flu Complications

Getting your flu shot helps prevent you from getting the flu and spreading the flu virus to at-risk populations.

Most people who get the flu will have mild illness and recover in less than two weeks. Some people however are more likely to get flu complications that result in hospitalization and occasionally death. Flu can also make chronic health problems worse.

  • Children under 5, and especially younger than 2 years old.
  • Adults over 65.
  • Pregnant women.
  • Residents of long term care communities and nursing homes.
  • People who have: Asthma, Heart Disease, Diabetes, Kidney, Liver and Metabolic disorders, weakened immune systems and those who are morbidly obese.
  • People who live with, or care for those at high risk for complication from flu, including health care workers, home caregivers and household contacts of caregivers.
