Flu season is coming and it’s more important than ever for each of us to consider our personal health circumstances, to consult with our physician in order to determine if getting the flu shot is in our best interest. In our line of work, we encounter a wide range of people from all walks of life who live in different parts of the world. To help combat this potentially adverse impact including deadly illness, we recommend everyone consult with their physician to determine if the vaccination for the current flu stain (other than COVID) is right for them.
The Center for Disease Control recommends that adults and children older than six (6) months get a flu vaccine by the end of October. Free flu shots are available upon presentation of your health insurance card at CVS, Walgreens, etc. or at one of United’s health and wellness resources. If you do not have medical coverage, you can still receive a flu shot for a low cost at your local pharmacy. It is expected that United will be making flu shot vouchers available from the company website during the early part of October. Take the steps to keep yourself healthy this season.
