Getting a flu vaccine can reduce illnesses, doctor visits and missed work and school due to flu, as well as prevent flu-related hospitalizations.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone age 6 months and older get a flu vaccine each year. Dr. Box said that because infants under 6 months can’t be vaccinated, it’s important that anyone in a household where a young baby lives or visits get a flu shot to protect the child. Antibodies that provide protection develop in the body about two weeks after vaccination.Healthcare workers also are urged to get a flu vaccine to reduce their risk of transmitting illness to their patients.Influenza is a viral infection of the respiratory tract. It is spread by respiratory droplets released when infected people cough or sneeze nearby or when people touch surfaces or objects contaminated with those infectious respiratory droplets. People can also become infected by touching surfaces or objects contaminated with influenza viruses and then touching their eyes, mouth or nose.Although anyone can get the flu, some people are at higher risk of flu-related complications, such as pneumonia, hospitalization and death. High-risk individuals include pregnant women, young children (especially those too young to get vaccinated), people with chronic illnesses, people who are immunocompromised and the elderly. It is especially important for these individuals to be vaccinated each year.The Health Department currently accepts the following insurance companies:Group & Pension Administrators (GPA)Indiana MedicaidMD Wise Hoosier HealthwiseMD Wise Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP)MD Wise Hoosier Care ConnectMD Wise Exchange MarketplaceMDWise Alliance Health Plan /Total Health/IU Medical GroupAnthem Hoosier HealthwiseHoosier Alliance Health Plan (MD WISE)Advantage by Managed Health ServiceSoutheastern Indiana Health Organization (SIHO)Advantage Health SolutionsUnified Group ServicesMedicare A& BBlue Cross & Blue Shield of IndianaSagamore Health NetworkCignaTricare North RegionLocal 135 Health Benefit FundCommunity Insurance CompanyBlue Cross & Blue ShieldAnthem Insurance CompaniesAnthem Health Plans of KentuckyAnthem Blue Cross & Blue ShieldIf you are uninsured or underinsured vaccinations can be provided at no cost to you.  For more information please call 812-689-0506.last_img read more
