Get your flu shot now. Find out how!

September 18, 2018

The flu (influenza) is a serious disease and can be dangerous, especially for young children and older adults. Flu shots are a covered benefit at no cost to you. Flu shots are the best way to stop the flu and its dangers. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone 6 months and older be vaccinated every year.

Peak flu season in the U.S. is from November to March. An updated flu shot becomes available each fall. Be sure to get your shot early to help prevent the flu for the whole season. Even a late flu shot is better than no flu shot.  

If you got your flu shot – good for you! If you haven’t had your shot yet, call your doctor to schedule one or go to your pharmacy.
