According to the Centers for Disease Control1, almost everyone age 6 months and up should get a flu vaccine, especially:

  • Children younger than 5
  • Adults 65 and older
  • Pregnant women
  • Anyone with a weakened immune system or chronic condition (like COPD or congestive heart failure)

Flu Facts

  • As a Humana Medicaid member, your yearly flu vaccine is free
  • Even healthy people should get the vaccine – “Healthy” people, without showing symptoms, can still get sick, carry the flu virus, or spread the flu to someone else
  • Get your flu vaccine every year – Flu virus strains change and vaccine protection declines over time, so last year’s vaccine may not protect you from getting sick
  • You can’t get the flu from getting the flu vaccine
  • Egg-free flu vaccines are available – If you’re allergic to eggs, ask your healthcare provider or pharmacist if the egg-free alternative is right for you
  • Flu vaccination by nasal spray is sometimes available

Don’t wait! Ask your doctor or your child’s doctor, if you have a child, for the flu vaccine today.
