Sick over the cost of a flu shot

To the editor,

Take advantage of City Market’s offer to get your free flu shot – it’s good for you, and good for our community. Do not, on the other hand, be duped into paying for a flu shot from your local physician. I made this mistake. I very clearly do not have an ACA plan, and yet I was offered (and not advised of the cost for) a flu shot which turned out to cost $120. Health providers should be watching out for their patients, not just ripping them off. I am appalled, and hope you’ll be more careful than I was.
