Thanks Julie, for the informative blog post. It is helping a lot of people. I have posted the link to this post on Zipper club Facebook group where people have found it to be useful. At EmpoweredMind we see a lot of cardiac patients that are grappling with the dilemma of having the flu and pneumonia shots, so we refer them to this post as well as your 2013 blog post (Flu shot linked to lower heart attack, stroke risk POSTED OCTOBER 23, 2013), to help them make up their minds. Thanks again.
Karen, I would think it depends upon your insurance company. In my experience, most insurance companies are slow to respond to covering new practices like this. I recommend calling your insurance company to ask.
How can I print your articles? I would love to print these off for my friends and family, but cannot afford to buy the for sale informational books.
Highlight what you want printed. Hit ctrl C and open a word document. Then hit ctrl V and the material should be there so that you can print it.
do insurance companies pay for the second pneumonia vaccine?
