Medicare covers your 2020 flu shot

Things may be different this flu season, but your flu shot coverage is the same. We know that cost might be a factor when deciding whether to get a flu shot, but here’s some good news: you’ll pay nothing when you get yours from a doctor or other qualified health care provider who accepts assignment.

Why get a 2020 flu shot?

People who are 65 and older are at high risk of having serious health complications from the flu. When people with Medicare get their yearly flu shot, it helps lower the number of medical visits, hospitalizations, and deaths. An essential part of protecting your health during this flu season is getting the flu shot.

This year, due to COVID-19, flu shots are more available than in the past. If you’re having trouble finding a place to get your flu shot, find a location near you.
