Every fall and winter, we hear a lot about the flu. The flu, short for “influenza,” is a disease that can result in missed time from work, hospitalization and sometimes even death.
As we turn into the third year of the COVID-19 pandemic, managing the health and safety of our hybrid workforces is more important than ever. So as we head into the flu season, it's crucial everyone gets vaccinated to keep themselves and their loved ones safe from the flu.
Here are five advantages to start planning your flu clinic today:
A successful return to work means maintaining a safe environment for employees. Providing flu shots to your employees lets them know their health and safety are a top priority.
