GET YOUR FLU JAB!

The flu vaccine is strongly recommended for the following groups:

  • All high-risk members (members registered with PMB Chronic Disease List Conditions, Oncology or other chronic condition).
  • All members older than 60 and under the age of 5.
  • People who care for children under the age of 6 months, as these children are too young to be vaccinated and can be at serious risk for dangerous complications from the flu.
  • People with chronic lung diseases like asthma and emphysema, as well as smokers.
  • People with heart diseases.
  • People with chronic liver diseases.
  • People who are immunosuppressed, such as those suffering from HIV and people taking immune-suppressing drugs like chemotherapy.
  • The families of the people belonging to the above group.
  • People who are institutionalised in an environment where flu can spread rapidly, such as a nursing home.
  • Healthcare workers.

Alliance-Midmed will carry the cost for all beneficiaries inclusive of the above-mentioned persons up to a maximum amount of R95.00 (incl VAT) from the Lifestages benefit.
