What are the benefits of workplace flu vaccinations?
- Vaccination can help prevent illness – and in turn prevent disruption to your business. Influenza costs Australian business more than $2 billion per year, with an estimated 1,500,000 workdays lost each year due to illness.
- Those vaccinated against influenza have half the number of doctor visits and sick days compared to those who are not vaccinated.
- Flu vaccination can be beneficial as an incentive when attracting and retaining staff as it provides a focus on health and wellbeing for the entire workforce of your business.
Which type of flu vaccinations does EHA offer?
The influenza vaccinations provided in 2020 will include Fluarix Tetra and Afluria Quad. Both vaccination brands are quadrivalents – they cover four strains of influenza virus (two A and two B). For staff over the age of 65, Fluad (trivalent covering 3 strains) is recommended as it is formulated specifically for this age group and works to generate a stronger immune response and is more effective in protecting against influenza in this age group.
