Protect your workforce with our corporate flu jab service. Every year in the UK, millions of working days are lost due to sickness absence caused by influenza; costing businesses dearly in absence costs and productivity. Flu vaccinations are the most cost-effective way to protect your staff from the onset of flu, and reduce the impact it can have on your business.
Symptoms of the flu can be severe and will invariably keep an infected member of staff off work for at least a week. The virus is highly contagious and attacks the throat, nose, and lungs causing high fever, headaches, coughs, aching joints and fatigue. By providing the flu vaccination to your employees, you’re not only protecting their health but also limiting the spread that can ultimately affect their family, friends and even your customers.
The flu vaccine has been proven to significantly reduce absence, meaning the cost of the vaccination easily pays for itself in an average year. Recent data has found that the flu jab has helped to prevent an estimated 626,000 cases of influenza per year so far, but still a lot needs to be done about tackling the virus in workplace environments where human contact is inevitable. The same research also found that widespread use of the flu vaccination could save the UK economy up to £28.9 million in averted sick day costs, in addition to increased productivity levels at work. This, in turn, helps to prevent significant disruption within your business and service provided.
At LycaHealth, we provide the Quadrivalent Influenza Vaccination, as recommended by the NHS and World Health Organisation – this superior vaccine provides each patient with protection against more strains of the flu than ever before.
The new Quadrivalent vaccine covers two important influenza A strains and two important influenza B strains, including the second influenza B strain which was not previously covered within the Trivalent vaccine from previous years.
Vaccines for the 2020 season will be available from the beginning of October. The demand is very high at the start of this season, so we strongly advise customers who are thinking about our flu vaccination programme to contact us as soon as possible to secure your preferred dates.
We offer a flexible flu vaccination programme that can be tailored to your business requirements. You have the choice of arranging for your staff to be vaccinated at one of our clinics, or if preferred – we can come to you. The vaccination process is carried out by our fully qualified and experienced nurses who take patient care as a priority.
Our experience allows us to provide a stress-free service, taking the pain out of the vaccination process by guiding the process and making arrangements as convenient as possible from start to finish – so you can focus more on the other important business matters.
Our professional team can work with you to communicate the programme to your staff, deliver everything required, and remove all the waste following the procedures.
Flexibility is something we are proud of, providing services that work around our clients, instead of the other way around. We can even create an online booking system that your staff can use to book their vaccination time, so they can choose a date and time convenient for them.
We offer highly competitive prices, and aim to offer the best value for money in the market for workplace flu vaccinations. If you receive a lower quotation from another health provider, please let us know and we will try to match it.
