About the program
If you have ever had to fight the flu, you know it is not an easy battle.  You were probably very happy so see it go, hoping to never see it again.  The flu can be an expensive battle as well. 
 
Why?
The flu shot can save thousands of dollars in needless sick-days and trips to the doctor.
  1. Protecting your employees with the latest information on how to protect them from the flu will help stay healthy and know how to take care of themselves if they do become ill. 
  2. Studies of healthy working adults have shown influenza vaccine to be 70 percent to 90 percent effective in preventing illness.  Statistics show that employees that get flu shots have 25 percent fewer days of sick leave from work.
How?
Providing your employees with the flu shot is easier than ever.  Banner Occupational Health (composed of OccuMED, Wellness Services and Rehabilitation professionals) has provided flu shots to many area employers in northern Colorado for the past 10 years. 
If you are not providing this service, we encourage you to consider offering flu shots at your worksite or encourage your employees to get a flu shot at a designated clinic in the area. And, if you are already providing flu shots for your employees, we congratulate you on your proactive approach to employee health!

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), vaccine supplies will be available for occupational health clinics by mid-October.  Flu shots are $25 per person.  Flu shot clinics are usually implemented with employees self-paying.  Some employers choose to subsidize all or part of the cost as an employee benefit.  Vaccination against influenza has substantial health and economic benefits for working adults. 

Schedule your clinic today!
