Why Should You and Your Employees Get the Flu Shot?
Influenza or the flu is a very serious disease that can lead to hospitalization or even death. Every flu season is unique and the flu affects everyone differently. Even a person who is very healthy can get sick from the flu or a flu-related illness and spread it to others.
Getting the flu shot is not just about protecting yourself, it also helps the community. When you get the flu shot, you are helping to keep higher-risk seniors and young children, who may not be able to get the vaccine, safe.
Why Offer Flu Shots for Your Employees?
Show your employees that you care about their health by offering them the flu shot at work. Employees who might not think about getting a flu shot may be more apt to do so if it is free and on site. This requires them to do very little and you will have a better chance of keeping your employees at work during flu season. The more employees that have the flu shot, the better your chances are at keeping the flu out of your building.
Who Should Get the Flu Shot?
Everyone who is six months or older should get the flu vaccine every season. These flu shots are also approved for use in pregnant women and people with chronic health conditions.
The only people who should not get a flu shot are those that are younger than six months of age or who have life-threatening allergies to the flu vaccine or any ingredient that is in the vaccine. If you have an allergy to eggs or any of the ingredients in the vaccine, you should talk to your doctor about your allergy before getting the flu shot. If you are not feeling well, you should talk to your doctor about your symptoms before you get the flu shot or wait until you are feeling better.
When Should You Schedule Flu Shots for Your Employees?
You should offer the flu vaccine before the flu begins spreading in your community. Flu season in North Carolina begins in October. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for the antibodies to develop in the body that protects against the flu.
