Can I get the flu shot at my local pharmacy?

Some of the most common vaccinations like flu vaccines are covered through your prescription plan. Check with your plan sponsor about specific coverage and copayment information.

If flu vaccines are covered, you and all other members covered by your plan can go to a local participating pharmacy to get the flu shot. Please note, every state has specific regulations regarding age restrictions, which vaccines can be administered by a certified pharmacist, and if a prescription is required.

Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) show that in the 2018-19 flu season, only about 45% of adults received their flu shot. This year, more than ever, we encourage as many Americans as possible to get the flu vaccine – even those who haven’t been vaccinated in the past – to help in the fight against COVID-19. It’s especially important for pregnant women, older adults, and people with chronic health conditions to get the flu vaccine not just this year, but every year.
