The flu isn’t fun. Your best defense is to get a flu shot every fall.
With your Lenovo benefits, getting a flu shot is free. Plus, it’s pretty darn easy and convenient. A lot more convenient than being stuck in bed for a week.
You, your dependents, and your spouse/domestic partner can get your flu shot through any Express Scripts network pharmacy. If you get your shot at the pharmacy, keep these tips in mind:
- Check if your pharmacy is in the network by going to Prescriptions > Find a Pharmacy on the Express Scripts site or through the Express Scripts app.
- Call the pharmacy ahead of time to verify their current vaccination schedule, vaccine availability, and age restrictions.
- Present your combined medical/Rx ID card and request that the expense be submitted to Express Scripts, whenever possible.
You can also get your flu shot through your regular health care provider.
Sure, there’s no 100% protection against the flu. But if you’ve been vaccinated, you’re less likely to contract the flu and less likely to experience severe symptoms if you do get infected.
