Make sure you’re protected against the flu.
It’s that time of the year again when we need to remind all Fedhealth members about the upcoming flu season, and the importance of getting their annual flu vaccination.
Selected pharmacies across the country already have stock available and Fedhealth covers the cost of the vaccine, so there’s no time like the present. Here are some points to remember:
Why get the flu vaccination?
What does Fedhealth’s flu vaccination benefit cover?
What’s the difference between the QIV and TIV flu vaccine?
Both are covered by Fedhealth, and both offer effective protection against the flu.
COVID-19 vaccines and the flu vaccine
There is NO waiting period between administration of the flu vaccine and the COVID-19 vaccine. You may receive both vaccines at the same time, but in different arms.
It’s recommended that the COVID-19 vaccine is administered to the left arm, and the flu vaccine is administered to the right arm, noting the arm of administration on the vaccination record, where possible.
It’s still wise to practice COVID-19 safety measures when visiting your healthcare provider/pharmacy to obtain your flu vaccine:
Ask your pharmacy or GP about getting the flu vac today.
