I just heard on the news today that doctors are seeing an early start to the influenza season in Northeast Ohio. This means that in a couple of weeks when we are enjoying holiday parties and family gatherings, we may be coming in contact with a lot of unwelcome flu germs.
Don't take chances. You still have time to protect yourself and your family by getting your flu shot now. Medicare Part B covers a shot once per flu season in the fall or winter. You pay nothing for the shot and Part B deductible doesn't apply if you have Medicare.
If you have any question about Medicare covering your flu shots immunizations, visit the government's official Medicare website at http://www.medicare.gov/coverage/flu-shots.html
