Ensure winter workplace productivity with corporate or company wide flu vaccinations from Onsite Health

The flu: virtually every workplace contends with it at some point. Most businesses have office flu breakouts every winter, leading to a slew of absences and a major blow against productivity. Luckier businesses might only deal with flu outbreaks once every few years, but even that is too often. By investing in workplace flu shots for your business, you can drastically reduce the chances of a flu outbreak—thus ensuring superior winter productivity across your entire office.

Onsite Health: Your Source for Company Flu Vaccinations in Auckland

At Onsite Health, we are the right people to help you with corporate flu shots. We started offering company flu vaccinations back in 2000, the year we began our workplace services. That date made us early adopters of the ‘flu shots at work’ model. We were one of the very first organisations in Auckland to offer this service. It’s since become a popular strategy to keep employees healthy throughout the winter flu season. We have been there all along, working with many businesses on an annual basis to prevent pesky flu outbreaks.

Typically, a bout of flu lasts a week or two. The worst symptoms typically stick around for 2-3 days and are often debilitating. Even after those symptoms subside, though, the flu takes a while to go away entirely, lingering with symptoms like fatigue and coughing for 4 – 6 weeks after the most severe symptoms have passed. 

Because of this lifecycle, the flu poses an especially large challenge for offices. On the one hand, you want your employees at work. Your employees want to be at work. They certainly don’t want to use up all their time off fighting an illness that keeps them in bed or on the couch for days at a time. On the other hand, you don’t want your workers coming to the office and coughing or sneezing all over the place, spreading flu germs to other employees. Neither outcome is ideal.

When your work with Onsite Health, you get a much-needed third option. Our flu vaccinations are seasonal quadrivalent flu shots, which means they contain all four flu strains expected to be in circulation throughout the winter months. These vaccinations are extremely effective in inoculating people against current flu strains. By making sure everyone in your office is vaccinated, you can greatly reduce the chances of the flu killing your productivity this season.

With the winter season in full swing in New Zealand, now is the time to protect your staff against highly contagious seasonal flu strains. Remember that the average person with the flu will miss three to five workdays. Multiply those statistics across your office, and you can start to see how much of an impact the flu can have on your workplace productivity. By investing in corporate flu vaccinations, you ensure a happier, healthier, and more productive office—even during what is traditionally the least healthy time of the year. Call Onsite Health today to schedule your office vaccinations in Auckland.
