When we start seeing fresh apples and apple cider on the shelves, it's time to start thinking about...flu shots!
Even if you are healthy, the people you love (children, older people, people who are sick) need to be protected. Protect yourself and the people you love!
Under the Affordable Care Act, for people with insurance, flu shots fall under the rubric of "preventive care," and in most cases that means that they are free--even if you have not yet met your deductible.
For most people with insurance -- whether you get that insurance through an employer, the Marketplace, or Medicaid -- you can get your flu shot at your doctor's office, or at a pharmacy, for free.
But if it's more convenient for you, or you don't have insurance, there are some flu shot clinics coming up!
