PRIVATE FLU JABS AVAILABLE NOW
It is estimated that the flu virus will cost UK business nearly £17 billion this winter and we are urging you to protect yourselves against the spiralling cost of employee absence.
To fight the rising cost of flu this winter, One Medicare has launched a new flu vaccination service specially tailored for local businesses. Available on request, professionals from the Sheffield Centre will send a specially trained nurse to visit business premises to administer vaccines to employees, as well as offering advice on how best to fight the flu and stay fit and healthy throughout the winter months.
Emelia Spencer, Operations Manager at One Medicare, said: "Cold and flu causes more sick days than any other ailment across the region, and every day lost through sickness costs local employers £692, a serious burden at a time of continued economic difficulty.
"Unlike the common cold, it is possible to vaccinate against the flu virus and this yearâ€™s vaccine also includes protection against the swine flu virus. Flu vaccinations are the most cost effective method of protecting your employees and business and our new service allows employers to offer their staff vaccinations, helping fight the flu and reducing the impact and cost of illness to their companies, effectively and conveniently."
