Keep Employees Healthy with Immunizations
Staying up-to-date with vaccines is vital to ensuring employees remain healthy and mitigate the risk of spreading viruses and diseases to other employees in the workplace. Whether your employees simply need an annual flu shot or require specific occupational health immunizations (i.e.: Hepatitis B) DISA’s occupational health clinics will help employees adhere to best practices. Certain industries and positions are more at risk of exposure to serious and sometimes deadly diseases. Examples of such industries include health care workers, teachers, veterinarians, etc. requiring job-specific vaccinations to protect not only the employee but also those they encounter daily.
Workplace Flu Shots
Each year the flu affects many people worldwide and can account for absenteeism, higher insurance costs, and employee turnover. To protect your employees during the flu season and mitigate costs associated with it, employers can consider providing workplace flu shots. Workplace flu shots will encourage employees to remain healthy and increase the likelihood them getting one in the first place, especially if provided during the workday and at or near the office for their convenience.
Depending on the industry, some positions require employees to work with individuals who could be at risk of carrying a disease, such as health care workers. Others could risk exposing individuals at higher risk, such as children or the elderly community. DISA’s occupational health services will provide employees with a comprehensive consultation to help employers determine which vaccinations would be appropriate for them according to their job position. In addition, medications, health and safety information, and travel advice might also be discussed to help build a health program suitable to each employee’s needs.
