As we get older, our immune systems weaken. That's why it's so important to get the vaccinations your doctor recommends.
Arm yourself against the flu
The best way to prevent the flu is to get your flu shot
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recommends everyone 6 months and older get the flu shot. Your Aetna® plan covers this service under your Part B (medical) coverage. When you get your shot, show your member ID card for medical coverage. How you get your shot is your choice.

Get a flu shot out of networkYou can also go to a flu shot provider that is not in our network. With this option, you must:
