As the flu season moves forward, the Southern Ute Health Department has continued to provide flu shots for everyone in the community. The Health Department recommends that everyone get a flu shot to prevent any sickness and becoming contagious. Approximately 5-20 percent of U.S. population contract the flu each year, which generally reaches its peak in the months of January and February. A total of 280 flu shots were given during the Southern Ute Health Fair, while a total of 400 were given around the community. Walk-ins for flu shots are welcome at the Southern Ute Health Center.
