Because flu season can begin as early as October, it’s critical to be proactive and vaccinated to protect yourself and your family from this potentially fatal disease.
The CDC recommends that everyone 6 months and older get vaccinated against the flu every year. Here are three reasons why you should not delay:
- It’s completely free. If you have a Marketplace health insurance plan, a doctor or other provider in your plan’s network can give you a flu shot for free.
- It’s simple. Flu vaccination is available at many convenient locations, including pharmacies and some grocery shops.
- You will safeguard yourself and others. You can lower your chances of getting sick and transmitting the flu by receiving a flu vaccine.
Additional benefits of Marketplace insurance
The flu vaccine isn’t the only preventive service covered by Marketplace plans. They also cover a variety of preventative health services, including screenings, check-ups, patient counselling, and wellness programmes. When offered via a network provider, these are all free, so make use of them!
