Flu Season is Here: Protect Your Patients, Yourself, & Your Loved Ones
It’s flu season, and flu shots are the best way to protect your patients, yourself, and your loved ones. The CDC recommends annual flu shots for everyone 6 months and older. Reducing the spread of respiratory illness, like flu, this fall and winter is important during the COVID-19 pandemic. You may give the flu and COVID-19 vaccines at the same visit as recommended by CDC and the Advisory Committee on Immunizations Practices.
Medicare Part B covers 1 flu shot per flu season and additional flu shots if medically necessary. Your patients pay nothing if you accept assignment.
