Flu season is upon us – options for getting a shot

By Amanda Merriman

The typical flu season lasts from around October through May, peaking in activity usually around December through February.  When considering the flu vaccine, it is good to know that in addition to your physician’s office there are convenient options available right here in the Castle Pines community that do not require an office visit prior to getting the flu shot.   

Of note, most insurances pay for the cost of flu vaccinations.  Please check with your insurance provider if you have any questions regarding coverage.  However, if insurance will not be used, details on cost are included with vaccination information below:
