ATRIO Health Plans encourages you to get your flu shot as soon as you can
and your pneumonia shot when recommended! The flu is a serious disease
that can make you very sick, result in hospitalization, or even lead to
death from complications of the flu. Getting a flu vaccine is the single
best way to reduce your chance of getting the flu and spreading it to
your family, friends and others. People who are at higher risk for getting
flu-related complications include those 65 or older, and people who have
certain medical conditions and chronic diseases including:
- Lung disease (such as COPD and asthma, cystic fibrosis)
- Heart disease
- Weakened immune systems due to a medical condition or medication
- Kidney disease
- Liver disease
- Blood disorders
- Seizure disorders
- Muscular dystrophy
- And others (talk with your doctor or ATRIO Nurse Case Manager for more
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that all
people age 6 months and older receive a flu shot every year and ATRIO
Health Plans wants to make that as hassle-free as possible for our members!
