Anthem COVID-19 Conversations: Why Do Vaccines Matter?

Your clients, and you, are likely to have questions about whether to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Anthem's recent Why Vaccines Matter article on The Benefits Guide blog can help you understand the benefits of vaccines so you can make an informed decision.


Here are some key insights from the article:

  • Vaccination is an important weapon in the fight again disease. Studies estimate that 42,000 children born in the U.S. each year would die if not for vaccines.
  • Herd immunity doesn’t only protect the person being vaccinated. It also protects those with certain health conditions who can’t be vaccinated.
  • Studies show that vaccines are safe. The FDA applies rigorous testing to all vaccines, including COVID-19 vaccines, before approving them.


Share the article with your clients to help them make informed decisions about vaccination. And remind them there is no cost to Anthem members for the COVID-19 vaccination during the current national public health emergency.
