It's Flu Jab Season: Why You Should Provide Corporate Flu Jabs

02nd September 2021

Flu season is on the horizon meaning it is more important than ever for workplaces to take all necessary measures to ensure their employees remain healthy and productive.

It is beneficial to provide corporate flu jabs to all of your employees as flu can spread easily. It only takes a few germs to spread the flu from one person to another. Just being in the same room with an infected person can be enough for the flu to spread.

Improved Productivity and Morale

The flu increases the chances for workplace sickness and absence, lowering productivity, morale, and an increased chance of an outbreak within the workplace.

Offering the flu jab to your employees is the best option. It’s convenient for your staff and shows your organisation cares about your employees well being and overall health resulting in increased morale and productivity with fewer absences.

Saved Cost Through Less Absences

It’s beneficial to run an awareness campaign alongside your vaccination program to reassure your employees and increase the likelihood of them participating.

Providing flu jabs at work helps to reduce pressure, cost, and disruption caused by sickness allowing your business to run efficiently through the autumn and winter period.

Freedom from Flu Symptoms

Getting vaccinated against flu protects you by reducing the chance of passing flu on to others. It’s especially important now with the recent COVID-19 outbreak.

The flu vaccine works by triggering the body’s own immune system to make antibodies that recognise flu viruses. Helping your immune system to fight the flu if you are exposed to it in the future.

Immunity is not long-lasting, but carries through the all-important flu season – usually lasting for around 12 months.

Other Precautions You Can Take To Avoid The Flu

Employers can assist in flu prevention by encouraging and promoting flu vaccinations amongst their workforce through flu awareness campaigns.

Employees should also take precautions to prevent the spread of flu such as; 

  • Covering coughs and sneezes with a tissue and binning it straight away
  • Avoiding people who appear to be ill
  • Practice washing hands and good health habits
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces in the workplace routinely

This year due to the COVID-19 outbreak, precautions are already standard practice at most workplaces including social distancing measures.
