Who Paid For The Flu Shot?

A few weeks ago, I was talking to my wife while I was at work, and she mentioned that she had gone to Target, and had decided to get a flu shot.  We’d never done this before so I was a little curious about how everything went down.

Typically, we get our flu shots in one of two ways:

  • Doctors Office – As part of a checkup, they will usually offer a flu shot during the season.  Our insurance coverage provides 100% payment for routine checkups and immunizations, as long as it’s done through a participating provider, so we have never had any out of pocket costs.
  • Work – The employer I work for actually brings in a couple of nurses for a day, and you can get your flu shot for free.  I’ve done this before, though if I happen to have a checkup scheduled, I’ll usually have it done there to avoid lines and such.
