Flu: Finding a Vaccination Provider and Seeking Care
Aetna Whole HealthSMmembers - You should get flu shots from your primary care physician (PCP). If you can't get them from your PCP, you can go to an in-network walk-in clinic. Please check to see if the provider is in our network before getting your flu shots. The retail locations listed below are not in the network for your plan.
Flu shots and other vaccine services are available at many locations in communities. To help you protect yourself against the flu and other conditions, Aetna has contracted with the following providers of vaccine services. Please use the links provided to find a location near you. Remember to confirm with the provider that they accept your medical plan prior to receiving services.And we also cover the shingles (zoster) vaccine for members age 50 and older. CVS and other pharmacies or retail clinics may require a prescription for the vaccine for members who are 50-59.
For specific locations where you can receive immunizations, please visit any of the websites below. You may also be able to get your seasonal flu vaccination from your doctor or at public health clinics. Senior citizen centers also often offer vaccinations
You should not go to an emergency room for vaccinations, since it is not an emergency service.
