Every flu season, you hear the same message: “It’s time for your flu shot.” Because the flu virus changes each year, this advice continues to ring true. Last year, the Florida Department of Health reported 502 flu outbreaks and of those who were sick, 70 percent were not vaccinated.
Seniors, children and pregnant women are especially at risk. But anyone can be affected by the flu. The annual vaccine is still one of the best ways to keep the infection at bay. All AvMed Members can receive the flu vaccine free of charge from an AvMed Participating Provider or their local pharmacy — just remember to show your AvMed Member ID Card. Don’t forget to reply “Yes, I got my flu shot” to any survey you receive at any time.
