In these unprecedented times, it is even more important to protect your workforce from the flu virus this coming flu season. Rowlands Pharmacy will be able to provide the vaccine in a safe protected environment using strict standard operating procedures to ensure the safety of your employees throughout.
According to the latest figures the average worker takes just over 4 days a year off through illness.1 Absence due to flu can mean important disruption to your workforce, productivity and costs to your business.
People often state location and convenience as reasons for not having a flu jab. Unfortunately, this often includes people that are considered to be in “at risk” groups.
The NHS provides a free flu service to all patients at increased risk of complications from flu. However, for the remainder of the population, the availability of a consistent private service is poor.
Time pressures influence people’s decision to get vaccinated or not. After all, taking time to sit in a GP waiting room is often difficult during the working day. In the current economic climate, even the smallest reduction in productivity can translate into a significant loss of profit for your business.
Flu vaccinations can reduce workplace absences; helping reduce the costs and disruption that this can create.
Employers that provide the seasonal flu jab as an employee benefit not only protect the individual but also the individual’s family and work colleagues. It also ensures that employees return to work after the minimal amount of time it takes to receive the jab.
Rowlands Pharmacy has been offering a B2B (Business to Business) Flu Service for over 6 years now and has been working with companies such as Next Distribution, Bentley Motors, Liverpool Football Club, Pets at home among others.
