Host Your Own Flu Clinic

healthmap vaccine finder fluInfluenza can seriously impact your workplace – adversely affecting the lives of employees and taking its toll on productivity. Each year, on average, 5-20% of the U.S. population gets the flu, tens of thousands are hospitalized and thousands die from flu-related illness. This costs an estimated $10.4 billion a year in direct medical expenses and an additional $16.3 billion in lost earnings annually.

Organizations can play an important role in preventing flu, protecting your community’s health and reducing losses in productivity and revenue.

Tips for Planning A Flu Clinic

  1. Access the CDC Toolkit for Businesses and Employers.
  2. Utilize CDC Materials to Promote Vaccination.
  3. Contact your health insurance plan provider, benefits coordinator or pharmacy to ask about hosting an on-site clinic.
  4. Educate employees about flu symptoms so workers stay home while they are contagious.
  5. Improve hygiene at work locations by encouraging hand washing and providing sanitizing lotions throughout the workplace.
  6. Review telecommuting policies to let employees take home laptops and work from home if necessary.
  7. Have contingency plans for vital work in case all else fails and much of its workforce is laid up with the flu.
