For 2019, Automatic Sprinkler Local 281, U.A. Welfare Fund (the Fund) has partnered with Jewel-Osco Pharmacy, to offer flu vaccinations for eligible active and early retirees and their dependents. Jewel-Osco Pharmacies accept Medicare, therefore members and participants covered by the Medicare Advantage Humana Plan do not need the voucher.
The cost of the vaccination will be $32.00, paid directly to Jewel-Osco’s Pharmacy. This flu shot is for the 4-Strain Flu Vaccination, and is intended for all eligible members, eligible spouses and eligible dependents, and can be administered to individuals ages 10 years and older. A High Dose Flu Vaccine is intended for use in people 65 years of age and older. As with all flu vaccines, a High Dose Flu Vaccine is not recommended for people who have had a severe reaction to the flu vaccine in the past. If you meet the criteria for a High Dose Flu Vaccine and DO NOT have Medicare B insurance, the cost will be $55.00.
Discounted rates are also available for Pneumonia and Tetanus (with whooping cough/tdap) vaccinations. Pneumonia (Pneumovax - $124.00 or Prevnar 13 - $224.00); Tetanus/TdaP (tetanus with whooping cough & diphtheria) - $64.00.
The shingles vaccine (Shingrex) requires two doses for it to be effective, and there is a waiting period of 2 to 6 months between doses. Unlike the flu vaccine voucher, which has vouchers for two people on one page, the first page of this document is the two vouchers needed for the two doses of the Shingrex vaccine. The second page is for your records to track the two-stage immunization.
