COVID-19 and Flu Vaccination:

The flu season is here and hence, don’t let it affect your company’s productivity. Influenza seasons are unpredictable and can vary based on their severity. With COVID-19 still considerably impacting lives in the United States, employers need to find more ways to keep their employees and workspaces safe. On average, 31.4 million influenza cases are reported each year.

Such situations not only pose a health risk, but also lead to more than $87 billion in economic burden. With the recent rise in coronavirus cases in most American states, employers should adopt an essential strategy for boosting the flu vaccination rate to minimize the chance of the second wave of COVID-19. Axiom Medical’s onsite flu clinics are here to help.

Do you know that company-hosted flu vaccination programs are more cost-effective? In addition to minimal chances of spreading inner-office flu, there are several benefits of vaccinating employees.

 

What Is an OnSite Flu Clinic?

An onsite flu clinic is an effective workplace solution designed to offer a convenient flu vaccination program for employees. With Axiom Medical’s Onsite Flu and Employee Vaccination Programs, qualified healthcare providers arrive at the selected location to administer flu vaccines on a pre-decided day and time. This process is comparatively smooth and encourages employee vaccination, regardless of the location of your business.
