ANNUAL FLU SHOTS: AN EASY WAY TO HELP YOU STAY HEALTHY
An annual flu shot for everyone six months of age and older is an important step to protect against flu viruses. Read this vaccine information sheet to learn more.
Each fall, make it a tradition to get vaccinated against the flu.
1: Your Doctor’s Office
You and your family members who participate in the Firm’s Medical Plan can receive a flu shot at your doctor’s office.*
Plus, your visit is the perfect time to get your annual exam – another preventive service that is fully covered when you use an in-network provider. Building a relationship with your primary care physician will help your physician understand your medical history and your family and personal needs. You’ll also have peace of mind knowing that he/she is there when you need medical advice and support.
*If the flu shot is not administered as a part of an annual physical or other preventive visit, the doctor’s office visit may incur charges.
2: Your Local Pharmacy
You and your family members who participate in the Firm’s Medical Plan can receive a flu shot at a participating pharmacy (OptumRx and Cigna). Be sure to call in advance to confirm that your local pharmacy participates in the network. Age restrictions and limitations may apply and vaccine supply may vary by location.
