While seasonal influenza, or flu, viruses are detected year-round, flu viruses typically circulate the most during the fall and winter, a time that has come to be known as the flu season.
The exact timing and duration of flu seasons varies, but flu activity often begins to increase in October and peaks between December and February. Since the start of the COVID pandemic, the timing and duration of flu activity has been less predictable. One of the ways to protect against the flu is to get the annual vaccination.
Dallas ISD Benefits Department is coordinating districtwide flu clinics for employees who want to get the flu shot as well as other vaccines available—high dose flu vaccine ( 65 +), COVID vaccine / booster, pneumonia, shingles. Flu clinics start Oct. 3 and registration is required
All levels of BCBS TRS plans are accepted for all vaccines. Scott & WhiteTRS* plans can be accepted for flu and COVID vaccines only. Other Insurance that will be accepted includes Aetna Choice, Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO, Cigna PPO, Humana PPO, Medicare Part B and United HealthCare Choice plans based on plan coverage.
Employees should bring their insurance card and a photo ID to their appointment.
