Today, You Need a Flu Vaccine!

Between 5% and 20% of the workplace population contracts the flu each year. Getting a flu shot can help keep you healthy and active during the cold winter months of flu season and protect your loved ones (children and elderly) who might become very ill from influenza. Influenza can cause days of fever, chills, cough, sore throat, sneezing, head and even muscle aches. On average, 36,000 people die each year from the flu and over 200,000 individuals are hospitalized from flu complications such as viral or bacterial pneumonia, congestive heart failure, diabetes, and the worsening of chronic medical conditions.

The best time to receive the flu vaccination is between October and December. Flu activity usually peaks in February and vaccination should take place before that time. High risk individuals are especially encouraged to get vaccinated. These individuals include anyone over 65 years of age, have a chronic or long-term condition, or are pregnant. Even those who are not within the high risk category should still get protection against the flu.

We know how important your time is and that’s why we offer a convenient work-site “flu vaccination day” for your employees. Our professional medical staff will come to your work-site and administer flu vaccinations to your employees and provide educational information on flu prevention. Your employees’ health is important to your company’s bottom line and exposure to the flu can lead to illness and compromise productivity. Let us help reduce lost work time and maintain your company's productivity by scheduling a flu vaccination day at your work-site.

  • Determine approximately how many employees at your company will need to be vaccinated.
  • Contact us to schedule a date and time for your flu vaccination day.
  • We will provide you with posters to display at your work-site to announce the date and time of your onsite flu vaccination day.

That's all there is to it! Be sure to contact us during this upcoming flu season. Call early to ensure vaccination availability!

Preventing the Flu

Avoid close contact. Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too.

Stay home when you are sick. If possible, stay home when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness. It is also recommended that those with the flu isolate themselves until they have been fever-free for 24 hours after they have stopped taking fever medication.

Cover your mouth and your nose. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick.

Clean your hands. Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.

Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.

Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces. Clean frequently touched surfaces in your work area with Clorox wipes or another antibacterial cleaner, especially when someone is ill.

Practice other good health habits. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food.
