Flu Shots

Keep yourself and those close to you healthy! Join the millions of people who get their yearly flu shot.

No one likes getting sick. And the flu virus changes every year. So, getting a yearly shot helps protect yourself and those around you.

The flu shot is a good idea for just about everyone. But these people are at an even higher risk of health problems from the flu:

  • Pregnant Moms
    Pregnancy can put you at higher risk for getting the flu and put your unborn baby at risk, too. But getting a flu shot can help protect you and your baby.
  • Children and Families
    Young children have a higher risk of health problems from the flu. Newborns are also at a high risk but can’t get the flu shot until they are six months old.
  • People with a Chronic Condition or Caregivers
    People with a weakened immune system are more likely to get very ill from the flu. Getting your yearly flu shot helps protect yourself and those around you.
  • Seniors or Those Who Care for Them
    Our immune defenses weaken with age. And people age 65 and older are at a higher risk for health issues from the flu. If you're a senior or live with seniors, a flu shot will help protect you all.

Why Get the Flu Shot? (PDF)

Flu shots now available at no charge at network pharmacies.1

Health Net Members will be able to go to a participating Health Net pharmacy to obtain their 2022-2023 Flu shots. Members will still be able to obtain shots at their physician offices.

If you get your flu shot and pay out-of-pocket, Health Net can help with reimbursement if your plan covers the flu shot at locations other than your doctor's office. Check your plan coverage to confirm.
