The winter’s 2-step protection plan: the flu shot + the latest COVID-19 booster!
As of January 1, 2024, the federal COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE) has ended. If you are in Plan B, any co-pays that were waived during this time are back in effect.
Step 1: Get a flu shot
Flu season is here, so the best way to avoid the aches and pains the virus can bring is by getting vaccinated. If your employer offers the shot at your worksite, get it as soon as possible. If not, remember that your Benefit Fund covers this vaccine—just make an appointment with your physician or visit a participating pharmacy
Step 2: Get the new COVID-19 booster
While COVID-19 is back on the rise, there’s good news—a new booster is here to help protect you from the latest variants. Even if you’ve been vaccinated or boosted or had the virus, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend you get the new booster. Speak with your doctor or schedule an appointment with a participating pharmacy.
