2014 Free Flu Shots for Members
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina's "What's True About the Flu" program makes getting a seasonal flu shot convenient for Plan members.
The flu vaccine is available at no charge to all Plan members when they receive a shot at a worksite clinic, at any in-network doctor's office, in-network health department, a participating Minute Clinic, or through a participating North Carolina immunizing pharmacist.
Worksite Flu Shot Clinics
Check with your agency, or the agency from which you retired, to see if it is holding a worksite flu shot clinic. Worksite flu shot clinics will run from Sept. 16 through Dec. 31, 2014.
Additional Areas to Receive a Flu Shot
Plan members and their dependents may also get their seasonal flu shot at their in-network doctor's office, in-network health department, a participating Minute Clinic (Click on "Find a doctor" on bcbsnc.com and begin typing "Convenience Care Center" into the search box and select "Convenience Care Centers" under Specialties.) or by a North Carolina in-network immunizing pharmacist (verify the zip code for your search. Begin typing "Pharmacist" into the search box and under Specialties, select "Pharmacist (Flu & Other Limited Injections) Convenience Care (Facilities)". You may also contact Customer Service at 888-234-2416 to find out which North Carolina pharmacies in your area have an immunizing pharmacist.
