Flu Shots Are Here
Stop In For Your Flu Vaccine - Just $25
Influenza season is unpredictable, but most years the flu season begins as early as October. This is why it's especially important to get vaccinated as soon as you can. The CDC recommends everyone 6 months and older receive an annual flu vaccination. The vaccine is particularly important for people who are at a higher risk of developing flu-related complications, including:
- Children under 6 years of age
- Adults 65 years of age and older
- Pregnant women
- People with certain medical conditions including asthma, diabetes and chronic lung disease
- For a full list of high-risk conditions, consult the CDC's flu web page
At MedSpring, we have options for flu vaccinations safe for children over 12 months of age and pregnant women. Also available are mercury-free flu shot options. Due to CDC recommendations this year, our flu shot is trivalent, with protection from certain virus strains like H1N1, influenza A and influenza B.
Most insurance providers, including many Medicare plans, cover the cost of preventative flu vaccines.
Important Note: MedSpring only bills insurance for a flu vaccine when coupled with a visit (except Medicare). Visits solely for a flu vaccine may be submitted to insurance by the patient for reimbursement. Check with your healthcare insurance carrier for more information.
