Patient Flu Shots

Flu shots will be available for current National Jewish Health patients mid-October.

Below find important information regarding flu vaccines for patients.

Flu shots for patients at Main Campus, Highlands Ranch and South Denver are available for patients with clinic appointments.

  • The CDC recommends universal vaccination for everyone over six months of age.

  • We stock high-dose vaccine intended for high-risk patients over 65. Patients over 65 will receive the high-dose vaccine with a prescription.

  • Flu shots are available for current National Jewish Health patients, not the general public. At the discretion of the physician, family members of high-risk patients may also be vaccinated. We are unable to bill insurance for family members who are not National Jewish Health patients; they will be required to pay at the time of service.

  • We will continue to bill most patient insurances this year if scheduled for a physician appointment. For most patients who walk in for a flu shot without a physician appointment, the flu vaccination will continue to be self-pay. Consistent with prices in the community, we are billing $35 for the regular dose and $65 for the high dose. Patients without insurance coverage for flu shots will be required to pay at the time of service. CICP does not cover flu vaccine, and Medicaid requires patients to go to a designated location.

  • The Highlands Ranch location will offer flu shots on an appointment basis. The South Denver will administer shots with scheduled provider appointments and on a drop-in basis. Northern Oncology and Western Oncology will administer vaccine during their regular clinic hours.
