It’s flu season. Now‘s the time to get your flu shot, if you haven’t already. The flu shot is the best way to help keep you from getting the flu, and it also helps protect those around you.
Once per flu season, flu shots are covered for people with Medicare, when you get it from your doctor, pharmacy, or other health care provider that accepts Medicare or your Medicare plan.
It’s more important than ever that we all do our part to reduce the spread of illnesses like the flu. The flu can be very serious, especially for older adults who are at higher risk of severe complications from the virus. Practice healthy habits this flu season, like avoiding close contact with sick people and washing your hands frequently, to help slow the spread.
