Standing Orders for Flu Shots

Last modified: November 10, 2020

This flu season comes with a unique set of challenges for your patients and your office. With the combined risk of influenza and COVID-19, patients may be hesitant to get their flu shot and immunization rates are likely to be lower than usual — which puts them at risk.

At UnitedHealthcare, we’re doing all we can to help you keep our members safe:

  • Encouraging them to get their flu shot, available at $0 cost on most plans
  • Asking you to consider using standing orders to help streamline vaccination workflow
  • Giving you access to resources to help you navigate the challenges this flu season       

From all of us at UnitedHealthcare, thank you for the important work you do to protect our members by providing vaccinations and other essential services.
