9/12/23, we are currently waiting for CDC’s decision on the release of the latest version of the Covid-19 vaccine. They will also recommend to whom these shots should be offered.
However, these vaccines are no longer free of charge. State of Oklahoma will be sending few doses to each Health Department. As of now, there are no indications that these vaccines are covered by any insurance company. We expect them to be covered, however it will be up to each individual company. The least expensive version of this vaccine for any age is at least 10 times the cost of the Flu vaccine.
Due to the continued decline in the mortality rate of those who contract Covid currently, the cost of the vaccine, and the uncertainties of the reimbursement from the insurance companies, Classen Urgent Care and Classen Family Practice will not be carrying this vaccine at this time. We will be reviewing this policy frequently and will update it when needed.
