In the face of COVID-19, every question, answer, and vaccination is important. That’s why we’re providing you with information to help ease concerns about your children receiving a COVID-19 vaccine, which the CDC recommends for everyone 12 years and older.
At the start of the pandemic, many of us postponed care that wasn’t urgent, like well visits or routine screenings. But now, a year and a half later, catching up is really important.
We all could use some good news after this last year—and the COVID-19 vaccines are great news. The vaccines have been shown to be safe and effective in large clinical trials. And they’re available at no cost to everyone living in the United States.
You have a lot to deal with right now, and we’re here to help. The benefits and programs available through your BCBSRI health plan can help protect your health and make your life easier.
A flu shot is the best way to protect yourself and your family from the flu. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends a flu shot for everyone six months of age and older.
