The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends everyone 6 months and older get a yearly flu shot by the end of October. Flu viruses change from year to year, so even if you got the shot before, you should get a vaccine each year to protect against the most common types of viruses.

Getting the flu shot is quick, easy, & free

  • By getting the shot, you’re helping reduce the spread of flu-related illnesses, hospitalizations, and even death. And according to the CDC, the flu vaccine doesn’t increase the risk of getting COVID-19.
  • Babies, children, and older people are most vulnerable, but no one is immune to the flu. Getting the shot is a simple and free way to help protect yourself and your loved ones.
  • Immunizations are a covered preventive care benefit. With Marketplace health insurance, your flu shot is free from a provider in your plan’s network.
