September is Flu Shot Month!

It’s Free. APWU Health Plan members can get their flu shot for free. Routine immunizations are covered at 100% when you use an in-network provider.

Shots for this flu season are available now. The CDC recommends that you take your flu shot before the end of October.  It takes your body about two weeks to develop the antibodies to provide protection against the flu virus. It’s best to get vaccinated before the flu starts spreading.

You can get the flu vaccine even if you do not have a regular doctor or nurse. Did you know flu vaccines are available at the pharmacy, urgent care clinics, health departments, in addition to the doctor’s office? Find an in network provider now by visiting our online directory or calling Customer Service.
