The Larimer County Department of Health and Environment is providing FREE tetanus (Tdap) shots to those involved in flood clean-up efforts (regardless of insurance status).  This includes anyone who has been or will be in contact with flood water and/or flood debris. 

            Those who haven’t had a tetanus shot (Tdap) in ten or more years are urged to get a booster at the Health Department during walk-in clinic hours.  If you get a wound, you will need to seek medical care from your doctor or urgent care clinic.  Certain wounds may require an additional tetanus booster if it has been more than 5 years since your last shot.

            The free tetanus shots (for prevention only, not for a wound) are available at the following walk-in clinics:
