Corporate Flu Shots
Did you know that a flu-infected employee may be absent for up to 6 working days? Or that the flu can impair an employee’s performance by up to 40%? Can your business afford the flu? If the answer is no then we suggest that you get your company vaccinated.
Flu is a highly infectious and air-borne virus particularly in an office environment. It is transferred from person to person by respiratory droplets in the air that are produced by coughing and sneezing.
A flu can also be spread by hand/mouth or hand/eye contact. Because it is a viral infection, flu cannot be treated with antibiotics and the only available preventative measure is the seasonal flu vaccination.
Holding an on-site flu vaccination clinic means staff do not need to take time off to visit their own doctor or nurse and their health is still protected. Healthy employees vaccinated against the flu take nearly half the number of sick days and have nearly half the number of doctor’s visits compared to unvaccinated employees.
Our experienced and qualified doctor(s) at Wellcare Medical Centre will visit your premises at a time that best suits both your business and staff needs. They will administer flu vaccinations according to our stringent protocols governing clinical quality and excellence. The doctor can travel up to 15km from our Kingston Clinic to administer these vaccinations – for more information or to organise a corporate flu vaccination session please call (07) 3133 4483.
