Most insurance plans cover the cost of flu vaccines. Patients may also request a flu shot at any regular visit.
The Centers for Disease Control recommend that everyone at least 6 months of age get a flu shot every flu season, which typically runs from October to May. Flu shots reduce the chances of contracting the flu and spreading the virus to others.
