Flu season is right around the corner, which means it’s time to get your flu shot. Luckily, GoodRx is here to help, and we have some good news for your pocketbook.
GoodRx has partnered with Walmart to offer all quadrivalent flu shots for only $24 with a coupon. That’s a 40% discount off their normal cash price! This discount only applies to quadrivalent flu shots like Fluzone Quadrivalent and Fluarix Quadrivalent, which are the preferred option for flu prevention. Keep in mind that GoodRx can also help you save on other flu shots, but some pharmacies may charge an admin fee.
Last year’s flu killed an estimated 80,000 people and resulted in a Tamiflu shortage, the drug prescribed to shorten the duration of the flu. While some blame last year’s vaccine for the high flu rates, the Surgeon General is urging Americans to get vaccinated this year. While insurance often covers flu shots, if you find that you’re on the hook for high out-of-pocket costs, GoodRx can help.
How do I use a GoodRx coupon for my flu shot?
Here’s what you need to do to use a GoodRx coupon for your flu shot.
- Get your GoodRx coupon. Just look up the flu shot you want to buy on GoodRx. Then, print, email or text yourself the appropriate coupon. Even better, download our free mobile app which has coupons built right in.
- Present your coupon and flu vaccine prescription at the pharmacy counter. To use a GoodRx coupon for a flu vaccine, keep in mind that you will need a prescription, either from your doctor or from your pharmacist. Check with your pharmacist to see if they will be able to provide you with a prescription.
- Get vaccinated. In most cases, your pharmacist will administer your flu shot at the pharmacy, otherwise, they will provide you with the package to take to your primary care doctor. Talk to your pharmacist about whether they charge an additional fee for administering the vaccine.
What are quadrivalent flu shots?
