MedSavvy pharmacist helps concerned employee regarding upcoming flu vaccine through Ask A Pharmacist feature
Our MedSavvy Pharmacists are here to help provide helpful and relevant information to employees. They can be utilized as a reliable resource for our users who have questions and concerns about medications, and in this case, the upcoming flu vaccine for the 2020-2021 flu season.
A member submitted a question through the MedSavvy Ask A Pharmacist feature regarding the origin of the flu vaccines for this upcoming flu season. Their concern was that if the vaccine was not supplied by a US company, they were not interested in getting vaccinated. Our pharmacist provided an outline of all the available flu vaccines for the 2020-2021 flu season, and identified which vaccines were manufactured in the US for this user- reassuring her to get her flu vaccine this year.
With the ongoing pandemic of COVID-19, it is important to get vaccinated and prevent ourselves from other harmful diseases. The flu vaccine has been shown to decrease the risk of flu illness, hospitalization, and death. Furthermore, the flu vaccine helps conserve potentially limited, vital health care resources during the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to protecting ourselves, we are also protecting the spread to others by getting vaccinated, especially those whose health is already compromised.
If you have any questions or concerns about this seasons flu vaccine, our pharmacists are here to help.
