Should the flu vaccine be free of charge?

I was asking around and found out that my drug store will charge you about $30 for the shot.

  • NO! As a tax payer I shouldn't have to pay for vaccines that are harmful and useless... You want it, you pay for it! I will save my money and my health thanks!

  • It costs money to make them. They cannot afford to keep making them if someone doesn't pay for it. You're doc will provide it at a well visit or a sick visit if you aren't that sick under the same copay

  • No. It cost probably millions of dollars to create the vaccine with research and such and then they also have to make the vaccine itself... they would go broke if it were free.
