If you plan on getting a COVID-19 Vaccine and have already started your series, please bring your COVID-19 Vaccination card with you; note not all types of COVID-19 vaccines will be available at every clinic – please check with your ED or RSD to determine which COVID-19 vaccine type will be available. Current guidance suggests that you continue your COVID-19 vaccination series with the same vaccine with which you started.
Residents & Family Members: The majority of insurance plans cover the flu shot, including Medicare. The pharmacy will need to see your insurance card before you receive the flu shot. They will collect the needed information and file the claim for you.
Associates: Elmcroft or Embark community associates will have two options:
- Present their Express Scripts card for their Eclipse provided insurance to CVS or
- If they do not have the Eclipse provided insurance, they can contact HR for a flu vaccine voucher to be taken to a participating CVS pharmacy. Either of these options will ensure there is no cost to associates for the flu shot.
Associates are not expected to pay for their flu shot. There are no upfront fees, co-pays, or post-shot fees if they use the options above.
