It’s flu season! The best way to protect yourself, and others, from catching the flu is to make sure you get your flu shot. Doing so helps increase herd immunity. There are people who cannot get the flu shot because they are too young, elderly, or have a compromised immune system. Here are some inexpensie ways to get your flu shot.

Covered by your health insurance
The influenza vaccine should be covered by your health insurance plan. This is true no matter if you get your health insurance from work or from a Marketplace. You are already paying the premiums, so you should definitely take advantage of the “freebies”.

Your workplace might set up a conference room where workers can stop by and get a free flu shot. They might let workers know about this through email or a memo. In general, flu shots offered for free at a workplace are given to those who have the insurance – and those who do not.

At your local pharmacy
You can make an appointment online to get a flu shot from Walgreens. They are being offered for $0 copay (with most insurance).

CVS is offering a no-cost flu shot. Eligible patients will not pay any co-payments unless required by their plan (including Medicaid Part B). Get your flu shot at CVS, and you can receive a merchandise coupon valid for 1-time use at CVS Pharmacy locations. The coupon gives you $5 off $25 of product.

Rite Aid offers a free flu-shot from a pharmacist. (It is free with most insurance.) There is no appointment necessary.

Your County Health Department
Call your county’s health department and ask if they are offering free flu shots. They might be able to tell you when it will take place. Or, they could refer you to another place that is offering free flu shots.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
