It Not Too Late for a Flu Shot

Posted by

The flu is very contagious. It spreads from person to person, often just through the air. Regular hand washing and avoiding sick people can help, and so can the flu shot. Flu season is upon us, but it’s not too late to get the shot!

There are special flu shots designed specifically for people age 65 and older. Medicare will pay for the shot, and so will many private health insurance plans. You can get a flu shot at your doctor’s office or from your local health department. Many grocery or drug stores also offer flu shots. The vaccine is the same wherever you receive it.

A flu shot won’t keep everyone healthy. But, getting the flu shot every year can mean that if you do get the flu, you might have only a mild case.

While you’re at it, take the time to ask your doctor if you need any other vaccinations at your next appointment!
