Flu vaccinations 2012

Just a quick update on the Flu vaccinations program 2012 from the offices of Corporate Health, situated on the Slough Trading Estate (to set the idyllic scene!)

Our first batch of Flu vaccination orders is now complete, with vaccinations being administered at our clients sites throughout the UK, as well as at our Slough Medical Centre. For those that know the Slough Trading Estate (SEGRO), our offices are situated close to what may well be the UK’s busiest Greggs!

When compared to 2011, our clients would seem to be approx. 3 weeks ahead and have committed to their flu programs earlier. This may well have been driven by concerns about the availability of vaccines, following the problems encountered by one of the vaccine manufacturers.

We are now in the midst of the second wave of bookings, with plenty of vaccine available.

Flu and why offer the vaccine to your employees?

Flu is extremely infectious and is passed on through sneezing, coughing and hand to hand contact, also  it can be transmitted indirectly from touching items such infected door handles and telephones.

Offering your employees a flu vaccination has a many benefits such as – reducing employee sickness absence and maintaining productivity; demonstrating a firm commitment to your employees health & wellbeing, as well helping to protect the wider community.
