Workplace Flu Vaccinations

The influenza vaccine is a proven and powerful way to reduce absenteeism and increase productivity throughout Autumn, Winter and Spring.

 

Corporate Flu Vaccinations

Studies prove that healthy employees who are vaccinated against the flu have nearly half the number of doctor visits and sick days due to upper respiratory illness, compared to those who were not vaccinated.

 

The effect of flu on your business

Absenteeism due to influenza costs Australian businesses more than $2 billion per year.  Implementing an employee flu vaccination program should be one of the easiest projects to implement.

In Australia, the flu is estimated to cost 1,500,000 lost work days each year. Unlike a cold, the flu can last for a week or more, with the feeling of fatigue lasting two to three weeks. It’s highly contagious, and infected people can infect others even before symptoms show.

The benefit of corporate flu shots

The flu vaccine and corporate flu shots can can also help prevent injuries. Employees who continue to work when they have the flu have 20-40% slower reaction times.

 

How effective is the flu vaccine?

Clinical trials have shown that the influenza vaccination is very effective in protecting against the severe consequences of infection. In healthy adults the vaccine has been shown to be 70%effective in protecting against infection.

The Australian flu vaccine 2017

The only available influenza vaccine strain for Australians in 2017 is called the Quadrivalent strain, as recommended for flu season by the World Health Organisation (WHO.
