Q&A: Preventive care

Did you know?

Some health care terms are used the same way when they may, in fact, mean something different. For example:

Vaccination vs. Immunization

  • Vaccination: Introducing a vaccine into the body, usually with a shot, to help give immunity to a specific disease. Immunization: When a person becomes protected against a disease through vaccination.

Some health care terms mean the exact same thing. For example:

Flu shot and Influenza vaccine

  • A flu shot is a influenzavaccine that protects against infection by influenza (or flu) viruses.

Member benefits

As your children grow, it’s important to keep them protected from serious diseases. Check with your doctor to ensure your child receives their childhood vaccines – including their flu vaccine - on time.

You and your children can receive these essential immunizations from your provider at your annual preventive care visit.

Health plan members, ages six and older, can also get vaccines at the pharmacy. Find a pharmacy near you.

Please note

If you receive preventive care marketing materials from sources other than your Health Plan, PCP or primary clinic, ask your PCP if you are due for the stated service or screening and how it’s covered by your health insurance.
