The Center for Disease Control recommends a yearly vaccination as the best way to prevent the flu. On average employees miss ½ – 5 days of work per year because of the flu. The flu costs employers about $10.4 billion in direct costs for hospitalizations and outpatient visits for adults.
Employees that receive the flu shot experience significantly fewer influenza symptoms, have fewer doctors’ visits, and miss fewer work days due to illness. Specifically, individuals that have been vaccinated have:
- 13%-44% fewer health care/provider visits
- 18%-45% fewer lost workdays
- 18%-28% fewer work days with reduced productivity
Company hosted on-site flu shot clinics make getting the flu shot easy and convenient for employees. With each vaccinated employee the company faces less risk of spreading inner-office flu, saves on employee sick days, and increases productivity. Company flu shot programs are a cost effective way to make sure all employees have the opportunity to be vaccinated.
