It's flu time again and we are vaccinating now for 2018
Flu vaccines remain one of the few benefits employers can offer employees that also have a direct and measurable benefit for the employer by reducing productivity losses due to illness over the winter periods.
In recent times staff numbers have dropped for many organisations. By providing vaccinations for your staff you will minimize any additional stress caused by absence due to illness over the winter period
Vaccination is the principal measure for preventing influenza. Various types of influenza vaccines have been available and used for more than 60 years. They are safe and effective in preventing both mild and severe outcomes of influenza.
Influenza rapidly spreads around the world in seasonal epidemics and imposes a considerable economic burden in the form of health care costs and low productivity.
