August is National Immunization Awareness Month which highlights the importance of vaccinations for people of all ages.  Vaccines are a necessary preventative measure against serious, sometimes deadly, diseases.

During National Immunization Awareness Month, we want to provide resources to ensure that employees and their families have access to this important piece of preventative care. Please read our Resources Article to learn how you can schedule a clinic at your company and other ways you can educate your employees.

As part of health care reform, most Carrier plans cover basic immunizations at 100% (with the exception of some Grandfathered/Grandmothered plans).  These include all of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommended Childhood and Adult immunizations with flu shots being the most common.  We here at EBC would be happy to confirm your plan status and benefit coverage for immunizations.

Each week this month we will highlight a different group of people.  The first week is for infants to make sure that all the children who are not in daycare are still getting vaccinated. Other weeks will focus on older children, adults and pregnant women.
