Get ready for flu!
As a healthcare professional, you play a significant role in helping protect your patients against influenza. With the flu season around the corner and the COVID-19 pandemic, an influenza vaccine recommendation from you is one of the most important factors in making sure patients receive this vaccine. One way to encourage flu shots is to offer the vaccination at each visit if your patient has not already gotten one.
Flu shots are covered by SCFHP. If your office is unable to provide the shot, SCFHP members can get one at most chain pharmacies. Members will not be charged for the shot as long as they present an SCFHP member ID card and they are currently eligible for coverage. Prepare your practice to provide flu vaccines using the CDC’s flu toolkit.
