“We are pleased to be offering flu vaccinations to local businesses”.
28 Drummond North Medical Practice’s corporate onsite flu vaccinations take place between March and June each year.
Approximately 1.2 million Australians are at risk of serious complications as a result of the influenza virus. In 2015, Australia reported approximately 90,000 cases of influenza.
Influenza is highly infectious are easily transmitted within the workplace. Infected employees can take up to 3 days to show symptoms, all the while spreading the virus to colleagues, customers and family members. This can have a huge impact on the day to day operations within a company due to lost work hours, sick leave entitlements and increased workloads.
By providing flu vaccinations to your employees you will promote a healthy workplace, demonstrate an interest in your employees well being and reduce absenteeism.
Sick days are estimated to cost the economy $30 billion per year. Flu vaccinations are a helpful way to reduce the costs associated with sick days.
We recommend early administration of flu vaccines to maximise the benefits of the vaccine.
28 Drummond North Medical Practice offers either an onsite or offsite service depending on the requirements of the company, meaning our Nurse can come to your business at a time which is convenient to you.
There are no hidden costs with our Corporate Flu Vaccine service, a flat fee of $25 per person for the quadrivalent (4 strain) vaccine. We can see 7 employees in a 15 minute block, meaning minimal interruption to the day to day running of your business, as opposed to individual employees leaving work to attend their GP. In addition, because we are a medical practice, any employee who missed out on their vaccine can be seen in the practice at no extra charge.
