Where to Get a Free Flu Shot in 2020

Yep, You Still Need a Flu Shot This Year — Here's Where to Get One For Free

We're still battling the COVID-19 pandemic, but that doesn't mean you can ignore flu season. It's more important than ever that you get a flu shot if you're able to in order to protect yourself and others and ease the burden on the healthcare system. Experts typically recommend getting the flu shot as early as September, before the virus begins to spread, although it's better to get one late in the season than not at all. Fortunately, no matter what kind of crazy schedule you're dealing with this fall, there are plenty of locations you can pop into for a flu shot without an appointment — and without a copay, too.

This year more than ever, the idea of making a trip to a clinic or doctor's office just for a quick flu shot sounds unappealing and even risky, especially depending on the infection rate for COVID-19 in your area. Instead, you might try stopping by a retail location when you head out on your next grocery or supply run, where you can get your yearly vaccine at little or no cost and without having to make an extra trip. We've compiled a list of the easiest places you can stop by for a free flu shot this year. Just be sure to check on availability and any age or COVID-19-related restrictions before you go.
