What Is The Cost Of A Flu Shot?

Flu season is here, but it isn’t too late to get your flu shot if you haven’t been vaccinated already. If you’re wondering how much the flu shot will cost, look no further.

How much does a flu shot cost?

It depends on where you get your vaccination.

  • Multiple pharmacies, such as Rite Aid, CVS, and Duane Reade/Walgreens, offer free flu shots (with insurance).
  • If you’re planning on getting your flu shot at a doctor’s office, your health insurance most likely covers your yearly flu shot. However, check with your health care plan before you get vaccinated in order to avoid any surprises with the bill.

How long does it take for a flu shot to take effect?

It typically takes about 14 days for your body to build up antibodies after your flu shot. After this, you can traditionally expect protection to last for 4 – 6 months, which is approximately the length of flu season.
