Savings Could Encourage More Vaccines During Flu Season

November 7, 2018

Americans are missing nearly 17 million work days each year due to influenza. That’s $7 billion in sick days and lost productivity and $10.4 billion in direct costs for hospitalizations and outpatient visits for adults.

The flu season typically starts in October and sometimes lasts throughout May. Physicians agree that the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones from the flu is to get vaccinated. Recent studies show, in fact, that a flu shot can reduce an individual’s chance of getting the flu by up to 60%.

Tennessee Drug Card, a TMA corporate partner, offers discounts for patients who choose to get a flu shot administered at a pharmacy. For more information visit or contact Natalie Meyer at
