Every Shot Counts: Giving Our Members the Facts About the COVID-19 Vaccines
Applies to: All Markets
Throughout our almost 90-year history, the health and well-being of our members have been our top priorities. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey (Horizon BCBSNJ) continues our commitment to helping our members get the information and care they need, when they need it.
That’s why we created our digital booklet, Every shot counts — the COVID-19 vaccines. This booklet answers questions that our members may have about the available COVID-19 vaccines.
Sharing the facts
We’re using email and social media to educate our members about the COVID-19 vaccines. We hope that you will review the Every shot counts booklet and share it with your Horizon BCBSNJ customers. The booklet explains that:
- Getting a COVID-19 vaccine is one of the best ways to prevent infection. In addition to getting a vaccine, we encourage all members to continue protecting themselves by wearing a mask, practicing social distancing, washing their hands and staying home if they are sick.
- COVID-19 vaccines are available at no cost. However, because members may be asked to show proof of coverage when getting a vaccine, we advise our members to bring their member ID card to their vaccination appointment or be ready to display their member ID card digitally.
Finding ways to help our members take care of themselves and their loved ones — that’s how Horizon BCBSNJ is here for our members, now and always.
