Colo. Health Department reaches out to seniorsPublished 12/22/2009

With all the focus on 2009 H1N1’s impact on young people this year, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment is reaching out to seniors 65 and older and caregivers of this age group to remind them that they are at high risk for seasonal influenza, not H1N1, and should receive their seasonal vaccination.
State health officials have heard from concerned seniors that they feel overlooked this year in not being considered a priority group for receiving the H1N1 vaccine.
Huffman said the unprecedented focus on H1N1 influenza this year has caused an increase in demand for seasonal flu vaccine, which has unfortunately been available in very limited supply this year.  Fortunately, additional doses of seasonal flu vaccine are arriving in Colorado each week.
Seniors are advised to check with their health care provider for the vaccine, or visit www.immunizecolorado.com for locations offering the vaccine.
