Many primary care and cardiology offices start offering flu shots, which are often covered by health insurance, as early as September.
Start by calling your doctor’s office. Many medical offices receive early shipments of flu shots for people who are more prone to serious illness, including pregnant women and people with cardiovascular, diabetes and other health conditions to help assure you’re protected.
You may also be able to get a flu shot at:
- Your pharmacy
- Your workplace
- Community health clinics
