As we head into October, we are reminded that flu season is straight ahead. The good news is, it’s becoming easier to get vaccinated against various strains of influenza. Hospitals and pharmacies are stepping up and offering clinics and even drive-through centers in some cases.

Employers, too, can play a role to help their employees gain the best possible access to preventive measures. That’s why an onsite flu shot clinic at your workplace is a highly sensible option for reaching more people; specifically, your entire employee population.

Offering flu shots onsite helps both you and your employees in numerous ways. Here is an overview of benefits provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and a few from Populytics:

Benefits to Employers:

  • Reduces cost by decreasing time possibly missed from work to get vaccinated
  • Reduces cost by reducing absences due to illness, resulting in improved productivity
  • Offers the convenience of vaccination at one time, in one place
  • Convenience increases the likelihood employees receive the vaccination
  • Fosters a sense of caring on the part of the employer

Benefits to Employees:

  • Reduces absences due to sickness and doctor visits
  • Offers convenience as employees can participate according to their schedules
  • Improves morale and fosters communication among employees
  • Helps empower employees to take action regarding their own health

Make sure your workforce is protected during the upcoming flu season, and consider the convenience of onsite vaccination. Through initiative and action, you can take a pro-active role in helping your employees stay disease-free and healthy for work.
