What are the benefits of flu vaccinations at work?

Running a workplace flu vaccination clinic is recognised as one of the single most effective ways to reduce sick leave during the winter flu season. If someone gets sick, they may be off-sick work for up to six full days. Research shows that healthy people who have been vaccinated for flu take 43% fewer sick days for flu-related illnesses than unvaccinated staff.[1]

Other benefits include an increase in your office productivity, staff morale, protection of your business against loss of resources and most importantly, the opportunity to show your staff you care about them.
