FluStop SM helps employers provide seasonal flu shots to employees at the workplace. (If you’re an individual member, please call the customer service number on the back of your member ID card to learn where you can get a flu shot.)
Please note: Program assistance and promotional materials for FluStop will not be available after December 31, 2013. Your organization can continue to administer on-site clinics after that date by working directly with providers contracted with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, your account manager or agent with additional questions.
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), an annual seasonal flu vaccine is the best way to reduce the chances that you will get seasonal flu and lessen the chance that you will spread it to others. A 2011 survey showed the workplace as the second most common place of vaccination (behind a doctor's office) for adults 18-64 years old.* The CDC recommends everyone 6 months and older get vaccinated each year to provide the best protection against influenza throughout the flu season.
