Flu shot blog makes Carnival of Personal Finance

Connie Prater

Last week’s blog about getting your annual flu shot at a pharmacy rather than going to your primary care physician was selected for the 283rd edition of the Carnival of Personal Finance.

A blog carnival rotates to different blogger hosts each week and features the best blogs posted about a variety of topics. The personal finance carnival focuses on managing your money, credit and debt.

Thanks to SimplyForties for hosting the carnival. She included the flu shot blog in the frugality category. The blog points out that it may be more cost efficient to get the flu shot at a local CVS or other retail pharmacy because the total cost is less than it would be if you file a claim through your health insurance.
