Business Update October 2012: On-site flu scheduling now available!

US Navy 021019-N-9593M-007 Flu shot preparations

Join the many small, mid-size and large businesses that depend on the Agnesian Work & Wellness occupational health services to keep their employees healthy during flu season.

Worksite flu vaccinations help business managers and owners make the most of their investment in staff. Employees who receive the flu shot have fewer upper respiratory infections, fewer days of sick leave and fewer visits to providers’ offices for respiratory illnesses. Flu immunizations also help reduce healthcare costs, increase productivity, and improve employee health and morale.

While everyone should get a flu vaccine each flu season, it’s especially important that the following groups get vaccinated either because they are at high risk of having serious flu-related complications or because they live with or care for people at high risk for developing flu-related complications: pregnant women, children younger than five, people 50 years of age and older, people of any age with certain chronic medical conditions, people who live in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities, and people who live with or care for those at high risk for complications from flu.

The healthcare professionals at the Agnesian Work & Wellness occupational health services have immunized hundreds of employees at their business site to a wide spectrum of businesses in this region. Their experience keeps even the largest flu vaccination clinics running smoothly and efficiently.

Agnesian Work & Wellness offers on-site flu shots to accommodate business’ schedules and employees’ shifts. Cost is $22 for the flu shot; $30 for the flu mist; and $64 for a pneumonia shot (which can be given at the same time as the flu shot). Call early to schedule your date and times.

Flu shots are also available through the Agnesian Work & Wellness occupational health services sites in Fond du Lac, Ripon and Waupun. Hours in Fond du Lac and Ripon are weekdays 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., and in Waupun from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
