The flu season is upon us once again, and it’s time to make sure you and your loved ones are protected. The flu is more than just a pesky inconvenience; it can be a serious illness that leads to hospital visits and even death. By getting vaccinated, not only are you protecting yourself from getting sick, but you’re also playing a significant role in preventing the flu from spreading to others.

Where to Get Your Flu Shot

Getting a flu shot is convenient and accessible. You can receive one at your doctor’s office, your local pharmacy, or various clinics in your area. Plus, if you’re covered by Medicare, you’re in luck! Medicare Part B covers one flu shot per flu season, and if your healthcare provider accepts assignment for giving the shot, you won’t have to pay anything out of pocket.

While the flu can affect anyone, certain groups are at a higher risk of developing serious health complications. This includes people aged 65 and older, young children, pregnant women, and individuals with specific health conditions. It’s vital for these individuals, in particular, to take proactive steps to protect themselves from the flu.
