Where to Get Your Flu Shot

Many au pairs and host families are looking for places to get flu shots this time of year. Your au pair insurance does not cover immunizations, but there are lots of places to get flu shots for $35 or less. If a host family is urging their au pair to get the seasonal flu shot and she agrees to get it, the host family would be responsible for the expense.

If you are planning to get the seasonal flu vaccine, it is recommended that you get it as early as possible.

You can often find local free flu shot clinics. Do a google search for “free flu shots near me”.

Flu shots are also available for a fee (usually $25-35) at pharmacies such as Target, CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens, etc.

I have been told that Kaiser Permanente is offering free flu shots as well.

Also, don’t forget the same preventive measures that reduce your risk of getting COVID-19 also reduce your risk of getting the flu. Frequent hand-washing, mask-wearing, and avoiding large indoor crowds are all helpful in reducing the spread.

Have a happy and healthy fall and winter!
