Get a Free Flu Shot

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

Protect yourself and your family by getting vaccinated against the flu—at no extra cost! A seasonal flu vaccination is recommended for everyone over the age of six months. If you are a BCBSRI member*, you can now get a flu shot or nasal spray vaccination with no out-pocket-expenses in one of three ways:

1. Stop by a participating pharmacy. If you receive a flu shot at a participating pharmacy, you don’t have to pay anything out of pocket. Most Rhode Island pharmacies are participating—find one now. Please note that this benefit is not available at out-of-state pharmacies.

2. Visit your doctor. If you’re going to your doctor simply to get a flu shot, you’ll pay nothing out of pocket. However, if other services, such as an office visit, occur on the same date, applicable copayments, deductibles, and/or coinsurances will apply.

3. Go to a flu vaccination clinic. If you attend a flu clinic, simply give them your health plan ID number and get vaccinated.

*This benefit is not available to Plan 65 members or members who only have dental coverage from BCBSRI.
