The 2020 flu season is fast approaching.
This year, it is more important than ever to get a flu vaccination as soon as possible. The Australian Government is urging everyone (aged six months and over) to get the flu vaccine this year. The flu vaccine is a simple, safe and effective way to protect yourself and others in your community against the flu.
At Cara, protecting the health and safety of our customers and staff is our highest priority. We recognise that many of our customers are particularly vulnerable to infection.
While the flu vaccine does not protect against COVID-19, it helps reduce the risk of fighting the flu and COVID-19 at the same time, which could make you very ill.
Cara is urging all of our staff and customers to join the immunity community and get a flu vaccination to reduce the spread of preventable diseases.
We are so committed to preventing the spread of the flu, that we are funding the cost of a flu vaccination (up to the value of $30) for all of our customers and staff this year, where they do not qualify for a free vaccine under the 2020 Annual Influenza Program.
The Australian Government provides free vaccines for eligible Australians under the 2020 Annual Influenza Program where they have pre-existing medical conditions. Many of our customers may qualify to receive a free flu vaccine. Refer to the South Australian Influenza Program schedule here or have a chat to your GP about whether you qualify for a free vaccine.
If you are not eligible for a free vaccine under the 2020 Annual Influenza Program, Cara will fund the cost of your flu vaccination. You can be immunised anywhere that flu vaccinations are offered – whether through your GP, local pharmacy, or at immunisation clinics across South Australia.
Once you’ve been immunised, please provide a copy of your invoice/receipt, a copy of your immunisation certificate, and fill out a reimbursement form (download a copy here), and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Customer fluvax reimbursement" in the subject line and we’ll process a reimbursement for your flu vaccination up to the value of $30 (does not include consult fee). Please note that reimbursements may take up to 14 days to process upon receipt of valid documentation.
