The flu shot is the common name for the influenza (flu) vaccination. These vaccines protect against the four influenza viruses that research indicates will be the most common during the upcoming flu season. These include protection for strains of Influenza A and Influenza B.

The influenza virus changes every year. The vaccine is specifically designed to target the strains for the upcoming flu season and minimizes the symptoms of influenza (A and/or B), allowing you to feel better while recovering from the flu, and reducing flu illness by 40-60%.

Almost all health insurance plans cover the cost of flu shots and other vaccines.

Some Accident Insurance and Critical Illness plans offer BeWell Benefits that you will qualify for should you receive the vaccine. Check with your insurance representative for instructions and qualifications for filing.

Although individuals can catch Influenza A or B at any time of the year, cases increase every September to Spring. This trend of increased cases brought along the term “flu season”.
