The burden of sickness absence related costs is something that all companies share, not to mention the associated disruption to workloads and colleagues. On average 10-12% of all sickness absence can be attributed to influenza forcing staff to take up to a week off when affected. Influenza spreads rapidly through coughs and sneezes of infected people the symptoms of which can start quite suddenly and severely which antibiotics cannot treat.
For companies concerned about the ever increasing cost of sickness absence, business continuity and the welfare of staff, a flu vaccination is one of the simplest and most effective ways of protecting your staff’s health and productivity.
By using ADVO Group Ltd you can arrange for a nurse to come to your office location(s) to vaccinate staff onsite, or alternatively provide staff with vouchers which will enable them to obtain their vaccine at a time and place more convenient for them.
What is a Flu Vaccine?
The vaccine contains inactivated virus (you are not able to get the flu from the jab) that stimulates the immune system to make antibodies. These protect it against the strains of the virus predicted by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as the most likely to hit the UK. In addition, this year’s vaccine also provides protection against H1N1 (Swine) Flu.
Vaccines this year have been recommended for pregnant women and those planning to get pregnant.
What is the Cost?
*This is the minimum charge for an onsite nurse for each location and is expected to cater for up to 48 vaccines. Additional charges will apply if this exceeds the expected 3 hours of nurse time.
