Fight the Flu: 2020 Resources
Help make history!
We have an opportunity like never before to fight the flu. And it's never been so imperative that we do so.
You're likely already doing nearly all the things you can to prevent the flu (wear a mask, wash your hands, and social distance), but the other thing that you can do is get your flu shot.
Unlike Covid-19, there is a vaccine for the most prevalent flu types, and it will help save lives.
Most pharmacies will also host flu shot clinics on-site if you have a large group of people. Encourage your employer, civic group, place of worship, etc to host a clinic.
The flu shot is usually between $0 and $5 if you have insurance. Many places will offer in-store coupons or cash back if you come in for your flu shot. Be careful – if you make a doctor's appointment just for the shot, you may have to pay an appointment co-pay.
Without Insurance: Adults Age 19-64
Without Insurance: Age 65 and Older
The flu shot should be covered by Medicare at all qualifying locations (pharmacies, grocery stores, clinics).
