We get it; you've heard it all before, the flu is back again, and you are wondering how to ensure your employees can stay healthy during flu season. This year, Qured is taking early action to guarantee you receive a highly effective and protective jab.
In the wake of lockdowns, there is speculation that it will be challenging to predict strains for the flu owing to a less prevalent flu season in 2020. According to researches, the lack of a 2020 flu season means that scientists have little data to create effective vaccines in anticipation of the 2021 flu season. That's why Qured is helping you take action now and limit the impact on your office. Read on to understand what "the flu" entails and its potential impact on your workforce.
The flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by the influenza virus. Commonly it affects the nose and throat, and sometimes it will affect the lungs. The flu usually is most present during the winter months (December to March) and is most likely to be spread within the first five days of presenting symptoms. Qured is starting clinics in October, so don't worry about preparedness as long as you book your clinic early.
Symptoms of the flu include: fever, cough, sore throat, running or blocked nose, aching muscles, headaches and fatigue, among others. However, not everyone suffering from the flu will feel the impact of all these symptoms. The long and short of it is, it's not pleasant!
As you would expect, a reduced workforce impacts productivity, morale and ultimately profits. Flu has similar symptoms to Covid-19, and we don't want any concerns amongst staff returning to the office. This could lead to increased anxiety around returning to work. 70% of workers will still opt to go into the office even if they are sick. This will likely increase the spread and the resulting impact on your workforce. What's more, let's not forget the increased recovery period from little rest. Morale will be eroded as staff either take sick leave, increase workload and fatigue on team members or attend the office, and make colleagues ill. Ultimately, your staff are at the heart of your business, and all this will impact the bottom line.
That's where Qured comes in. We appreciate how integral people are to your business. So, instead of just offering a vaccine, we're offering a vaccine that does the job. With the Seqirus Quadrivalent Jab, we want to ensure that you get first-class treatment to support your workforce. Every year the vaccines change, and we've chosen one of the highest recommended jabs for this year. Qured's flu clinics operate as mobile clinics meaning your staff won't need to find a pharmacy that accepts their flu voucher and work on fitting it into their day. Instead, we will bring a nurse on-site with our vaccine appointments. Each appointment lasts just 6 minutes - perfect to fit into even the busiest schedules.
The Seqirus Quadrivalent vaccine tackles four strains of the virus that the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) anticipates will be prevalent in the coming winter. Rest assured, this is one of the highest recommended vaccine jabs by the JCVI.
Our vaccine is egg-free and suitable for 18-65-year-olds - we've covered several bases to ensure as much of your workforce as possible are vaccinated.
Our corporate flu jab will help keep your staff working at their optimum in the confidence that they are receiving the best treatment. Our flu vaccine clinics start in October, and we are already taking pre-bookings. With Qured, you do the clinic in the safety of your office with a seamless and first-class experience that your staff deserve. The minimum amount of vaccinations is 10 per clinic, and from there, we can accommodate companies of any size.
Keep your workforce strong, stay motivated and stay productive! Qured is here for you and will continue to offer affordable and quality care to you at your doorstep.
