Get a seasonal flu shot every year.
Everyone age 6 months and older needs to get the seasonal flu vaccine every year.

What about cost?
Many shots for adults are covered under the Affordable Care Act, the health care reform law passed in 2010. Depending on your insurance plan, you may be able to get your shots at no cost to you.

  • If you have Medicare or private insurance, check to find out what’s included in your plan. Ask about the Affordable Care Act.
  • If you don’t have insurance, you still may be able to get free shots.
