Free Flu Shots in Los Angeles Through November 2nd

If you live in Los Angeles and haven’t had your flu shot yet, we’ve got some great incentive for you to finally get one. The Immunize LA Families Coaliation is sponsoring free flu shot clinics in South Los Angeles through November 2nd.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend flu shots for most people over the age of 6. Flu shots retail for about $30 apiece at most major drugstore chains like CVS and Walgreens, so if you haven’t gotten one yet, this is a great opportunity to get free flu shot for your family.

To find a clinic offering free flu shots, call 2-1-1 or check out the L.A. County flu clinic website.

If you don’t live in Los Angeles, here are some other options for free or low-cost flu shots:

Here are some free or low-cost options for flu shots this year:

Your Local Department of Health: Most local departments of health offer free flu shots to those who qualify (usually, seniors, the uninsured, low-income adults, and/or children).

Community Free Health Clinics: Community free health clinics usually offer free flu shots to uninsured and/or low-income adults.

Medicare: Medicare covers flu shots for seniors without a copayment or deductible. If you belong to a Medicare HMO, you may be required to go to a specific location to get your free flu shot, but if you are covered by original Medicare your flu shot will be covered at any doctor’s office or pharmacy that accepts Medicare (most do).

Medicaid: The flu shot is also typically covered by Medicaid. Check with your local Medicaid office to confirm.

Costco: Costco is offering flu shot clinics, and pricing flu shots at $20 each, not bad compared to your local drugstore.

Although they don’t provide flu shots, the United Way can also help you locate free flu shots in your area through their 2-1-1 line.
