Calling the “Shots” – 3 Reasons to Vaccinate

Calling the ShotsAs an employer, you can make significant strides in improving your employees’ overall health by educating them about the importance of immunizations.  As August officially kicks off National Immunization Awareness Month, now is the time to get your vaccinations up to date!

Why Vaccinate?

There are 3 primary reasons why it’s a good idea to get vaccinated:

1. Protect Yourself From Serious Diseases

Vaccinations introduce inactive parts of germs (viruses or bacteria) to your immune system so that it can help your body recognize them later. Because the immune system now recognizes the invader, it can more easily overpower this threat—should you be exposed to it again. This keeps you from literally becoming a germ factory.

2. Shield Your Co-workers and Family Members

Getting vaccinated is not just something you do for yourself. Keeping up with your vaccines also protects your neighbors, loved ones, and coworkers from harmful diseases. It’s simple: if your body recognizes a disease-causing agent in your system right away, it can fight it before you can spread it to others or get sick yourself.

3. Skip the Sick Days

Vaccines can keep you healthy and help you avoid missing work or time with your family and friends. As a busy adult in the workforce, staying up to date on your vaccinations helps you spend your time the way you want—instead of sick in bed.

Vaccines to Keep on Your Radar

 All adults will want to have the following vaccines on your radar and make sure you are up to date:

  • Hepatitis A
  • Hepatitis B
  • MMR (measles, mumps, rubella)
  • Td/Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis)
  • Varicella (chickenpox)
  • Zoster (shingles)—usually given at age 60 and older
  • Pneumococcal (for pneumonia)

"We have an incredible safety record; no OSHA recordables for the 6 years I’ve been here and I attribute that to Axiom’s involvement.

The nurses are so wonderful and so attuned to the Employees and help them return to work safely after an injury. They listen very well and the education is the most important. Our employees and managers love them.

Thank you for all that you do."
