Flu Season Ahead Sign

Are you looking to get a flu shot soon?

Many insurances will cover the cost of flu shots and some employers and colleges will host flu clinics to make it even easier to get a flu shot this season. Make sure to check with your insurance company first to make sure they cover it or will reimburse you for it.

If you are looking for free and low-cost flu clinics, check out this flu clinic finder where you can find local clinics and register. If you have to pay out of pocket, the site will also list whether or not the flu shot will be free.

Also, Boston Public Health Commission Flu Finder lists various flu clinics in Boston.

Flu shots are typically around $30-40 at pharmacies, however, prices may vary. You may find flu shots a little cheaper at Wal-Mart or Target if you live near one. Costco is usually the cheapest option at $15 or so for a flu shot.
