Flu Vaccine Clinics are probably the most widely used of all corporate immunization projects. They are safe and effective and Passport Health makes the program easy. What's more, the programs are highly costs effective.
Influenza, otherwise known as flu, is an acute, highly contagious respiratory disease, often occurring in epidemic proportions. Flu can cause: fever, cough, chills, sore throat, headache, muscle aches, etc. People of any age can get the flu. Most people are ill with the flu for only a few days, but some may need to be hospitalized. Influenza causes thousands of deaths each year.
Anyone who wants to reduce his or her chance of catching the flu should get vaccinated. Optimum immunization in the U.S. is from mid September through early January. The flu is prevalent in tropical areas throughout the year, therefore, immunization should be updated prior to tropical or Southern Hemisphere travel.
A flu immunization program can increase company productivity, reduce absenteeism and medical costs and show employees that the company cares about their health.
Passport Health takes care of all the logistics, paperwork, record keeping and disposal of medical waste. Employers have little more to do than provide a room. Our marketing staff will help you increase awareness and attendance by placing posters and education videos in common areas, as well as by providing you with form emails and mailers for your employees. Our office staff will deliver all pertinent materials well in advance of your scheduled on-site clinic. Our nurses are specially trained in immunizations so the clinic goes very smoothly, and we can vaccinate 60 or more employees in an hour. Thus time lost from work is minimal.
We are part of your community and unlike mobile services that disappear once an on-site clinic is complete, Passport Health is always available and accessible. With our convenient midtown location, if an employee misses the clinic he/she can visit us and receive the flu shot at the same discounted price.
