THE VAXWORKS DIFFERENCE
The VaxWorks 4-Step Process
Once our proposal is accepted, there is a simple 4-step process to ensure a successful and efficiently run flu vaccination clinic at your workplace. We will keep in regular contact with you to help you stay on schedule and staff will receive email reminders and SMS alerts for their upcoming appointment.
Our Nurse Immunisers stay on site for 15 minutes after the last vaccination is administered in case your staff need them.
The flu is much worse than having a cold. The most common effects of flu are body aches, headaches, fever, chills and fatigue. People who get the flu will usually need 4-6 days off work. If they do come to work, their performance suffers to the same extent as if they had been drinking, and they risk spreading the flu to other employees as well.
Each year in Australia, influenza results in 18,000 hospitalisations, over 300,000 GP consultations and costs the Australian health care system at least $85 million.
The flu also costs businesses an estimated 1.5 million work days lost each year.
The research overwhelmingly shows that vaccinating employees against influenza saves money for businesses. A company can generally expect to save $2.50 in wages for every dollar invested in a workplace vaccination program and $5.00 for every dollar invested when lost productivity is taken into account.
The flu can affect up to 15% of people each year, but even in a year when only 5% of people get the flu, a vaccination program is still expected to save you money.
When you take into account some of the other benefits of your program such as employee appreciation, prevention of influenza in unvaccinated staff and greater convenience for staff who want to get vaccinated, the benefits of a flu vaccination program become very clear.
