Getting a flu shot is an essential part of protecting your health and your family’s health this year. Reducing the spread of illnesses like the flu is more important than ever.

Remember, the flu shot is covered for people with Medicare from providers that accept Medicare or your Medicare plan. You can safely get a flu shot at multiple locations, like at your doctor’s office or pharmacy.

All places offering flu shots should be following CDC guidance to ensure you have a safe place to get vaccinated. This includes that patients wear a face covering and maintain social distance in areas like waiting rooms.

Getting your annual flu shot as soon as possible gives you and your loved ones the best protection throughout the flu season
