Get your flu shot and keep yourself healthier during coronavirus

 

The flu vaccine is free, safe and easy

Flu season begins in September, so now is the time to get vaccinated. And with the coronavirus (COVID-19) still spreading, it’s more important than ever to get a flu shot. While the shot can’t prevent COVID-19, it can help stop you from getting the flu. It is good to stay as healthy as possible while COVID-19 is still a concern.

Who should get the flu vaccine?  

Every person over the age of six months should get an annual flu shot. Remember, flu shots are FREE for all CareOregon Advantage members. Talk with your primary care provider (PCP) if you have any questions about whether the flu vaccine is right for you.

Where can I get the flu vaccine?

  • Members who are 19 or older may get a flu shot from a participating pharmacy or from their PCP.
  • Members who are 18 or younger should get their flu shot from their PCP.
  • Find a pharmacy here: careoregonadvantage.org/providersearch
  • What to bring with you: Be sure to have your CareOregon Advantage Member ID card and your driver’s license or other government-issued ID. (Even if you have dual coverage with Medicaid, show your CareOregon Advantage card.)

Here is some more information about the flu shot and why you should get it:
