I notice AWS Application Load Balancer sends every 300 seconds(max) health check to the servers(target groups, ec2 instance).
Does these health checks are included in free tier? couldn't find the answer anywhere. https://docs.aws.amazon.com/elasticloadbalancing/latest/application/target-group-health-checks.html

Is there a way to cancel it?

It's free

Data transferred "in" to and "out" from Amazon Classic and Application Elastic Load Balancers using private IP addresses, between EC2 instances and the load balancer in the same AWS VPC is free.
