People who are 65 and older are at high risk of having serious health complications from the flu. Getting the flu shot protects you from getting the flu and keeps you from spreading it to others and developing other serious complications. Medicare Part B pays for your annual flu shot. According to the latest CDC information, the 2020-2021 flu vaccine is supposed to be a better match to the viruses expected to be prevalent this season than the previous years.   There are also two new flu vaccines available for seniors this year. Medicare also provides many other vaccine coverages such as Hepatitis B and the Pneumococcal vaccine coverage.  With Medicare Part D or Medicare Advantage Plan the shingles vaccine is also available. It is very important to stay up to date on all vaccines in order to prevent unnecessary and avoidable complications.
