Older Adults Need Vaccines Too
Medicare Part B pays for the Influenza (flu), Pneumococcal, and Hepatitis B (for persons at increased risk) vaccines. It also pays for vaccines that are directly related to the treatment of an injury or direct exposure to a disease or condition, such as rabies and tetanus. Medicare Part D pays for vaccines, like the shingles vaccine, unless they are covered by Part B. To learn more about vaccine coverage through Medicare, visit medicare.gov/coverage/shots.html.
