Vaccines help keep all of us healthy. Protect yourself and your loved ones from serious diseases by getting recommended immunizations throughout your life.
National Immunization Awareness Month, observed in August, is a reminder that you have the power to protect yourself, your family, and those around you against many serious diseases. How? By getting the recommended vaccines on schedule.
Here are three things you can do to make sure you and your loved ones have the vaccines you need to keep you healthy.
If you have medical coverage* through the Board of Pensions, the immunizations recommended in the 2019 Preventive Schedule are 100 percent covered (no deductibles, copays, or copayments apply) when you use network providers. Annual wellness exams with a primary care provider and health screenings at the intervals on the schedule are also 100 percent covered. Be sure to record preventive visits at calltohealth.org to earn points.
*Those enrolled in Triple-S, GeoBlue, or the Medicare Supplement Plan also have preventive care benefits under their plans, but coverage details may differ. Consult your plan’s provisions for details.
