Getting Your Flu Shot


Getting a yearly flu shot protects you and those around you from getting sick. Best of all, your Medicare plan covers one shot per flu season. At AvMed, we urge our Medicare Members to get annual flu shots and practice preventive measures like:

  • Wash your hands
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
  • Stay home when you’re sick
  • Clean frequently touched surfaces
  • Talk to your doctor to get more information about yearly flu shots
