Flu season is quickly approaching, and now, more than ever, it is important that you get your flu shot. If you have an appointment with your OBGYN in the coming weeks and haven’t yet gotten your flu shot, ask them about it.
It is also important that expectant mothers get the flu shot. This not only protects the mom from getting the flu while pregnant, but protects the baby as well. Your OBGYN will give you the injections as, unfortunately, expecting mothers should not get the nasal spray flu vaccine.
The HPV vaccine protects women against the human papilloma virus, which can cause cervical cancer. There are multiple shots in this series, requiring women to come in multiple times. Depending on your age, you may require two shots, spaced six to 12 months apart, or three shots. Your OBGYN can discuss how many shots you will need before you start the series.
Pneumonia and shingles
It is recommended that women over the age of 65 get the shingles and pneumonia vaccines. These can help keep women healthy over the winter months. However, not all OBGYN offices carry these vaccines, so be sure to mention it to your doctor or receptionist when scheduling your appointment. If they aren’t able to get it, they will be able to direct you to a physician that does.
Vaccines and insurance
The majority of insurance carriers cover vaccines. But, whether or not you will need to pay a copay of any kind or any additional fee outside of the appointment charge varies by insurance provider. If you have questions about how your insurance plan covers any type of vaccination, contact them. Your OBGYN’s office can also help if you need more information on the types of shots you’ll be receiving at your appointment.
