IT’S IMPORTANT TO GET A FLU SHOT!

Click here for a list of in-network pharmacies where you can get a flu shot.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine every season. Flu vaccinations can begin now as seasonal influenza outbreaks can happen as early as October.

Flu vaccines are offered in many locations, including doctor’s offices, clinics, health departments, pharmacies, and even in some schools. Getting vaccinated yourself also protects people around you, including those who are vulnerable to serious flu illness, like babies and young children, older people, and people with certain chronic health conditions. Please click here for more information on flu vaccinations.

Sendero Health Plans IdealCare members get a $10 HEB gift card when they get a flu shot. As soon as a claims form or a receipt is generated for you flu vaccination your gift card will be processed. It may take 4-6 weeks before you receive it in the mail. Thank you for getting a flu shot.
