I hope this note finds you in great health and excellent spirits despite the crazy times.
Elections, COVID, and crazy weather, believe me, everyone is ready for 2020 to finish 😊.
We’ve been getting a ton of questions about the new flu, and from what I am reading, this year’s strain could be extra dangerous. Click on picture and learn how to protect yourself.
Of course you know you need a flu shot, but did you get one yet? If you have a Medicare Supplement, getting the shot in your local pharmacy for most plans will keep the cost to $0.
If you have an Advantage Plan, confirm with your doctor’s office there is no copay.
In talking with my pharmacist, there are different versions of the vaccine, but they were recommending the High Dose Flu vaccine. It has four times as many antigens (whatever those are). Talk to your doctor, but do the right thing, please, because I actually like having Medicare clients 😊.
Here’s more information about the flu and vaccination options.
Remember, the Annual Election Period is upon us and the new plans for 2021 are finally out. Let me know if your friends and family need help, that’s why I’m here.
Stay safe and please book a time on my calendar if you need me (my calendar only runs 7 days in advance, so be patient).
