When it comes to creating a safe, healthy and productive workplace environment, it is natural for companies to focus on providing the necessary tools, guidelines, equipment, and software applications that will boost productivity and keep employees focused.
However, when the flu season approaches companies and businesses will have to rely on more than just applications and methodologies to ensure work and productivity doesn’t plummet.
In Australia the flu season usually creeps around late autumn to early spring, and around 5-20% of the Aussie population is infected each year depending on how wide or aggressive the outbreak is. That is why it is imperative for workplaces to ensure that their employees are secure against Influenza outbreaks with Flu Vaccinations.
In 2019 alone, the Australian Health Department reported high level of infected flu patients with more than 800 deaths due to influenza that were officially reported. And now with the ongoing pandemic, the health care system in Australia is under stress while trying to accommodate patients with the COVID-19 virus and other diseases.
Therefore, working with Vaccin8 Plus to create a fool proof vaccination program available for your employees is not only a great idea but a wise one that will have positive benefits both for the health and safety of your employees.
When to start the Influenza Vaccination:
The flu season usually begins from June and lasts till September, however it can affect the general population throughout the year due to different outbreaks that can occur over time or if people are travelling.
