During the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s important to protect your health and the health of families, friends and the community. One way is to take action in fighting the flu by getting a flu shot, at Anthem’s free flu shot clinic, held Friday, November 20, 2020. The flu shots were administered by Hayat Pharmacy, provided by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield; and hosted by Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield and Gee’s MKE Wellness Clinic, 2200 N. Dr. Martin Luther King Dr. Anthem associates, along with members of the local community, volunteered throughout November at Gee’s MKE Wellness Clinic for the health and wellness flu shot events. All flu shots were free of charge to community members regardless of health insurance coverage. Individuals may also benefit from additional support services the wellness clinic offers, including blood pressure checks, blood glucose screenings, BMI/weight checks, along with referrals to community resources for primary care doctors, health insurance application assistance, education, job support and more.
