WORKPLACE FLU CLINIC
How does the TMVC Workplace Flu Clinic work?
Contact one of our agents at 250.927.2882 or email us at [email protected]
Tell us when and where you would like your employees vaccinated
We will arrange for a registered nurse to set up a clinic at your location
Our nurses will then safely provide your staff with the flu shots they need including any documentation
And that’s it!
Note: Your group must have 10 or more employees to qualify for the workplace flu program
How effective are the shots?
The effectiveness of flu shots varies year to year depending on the flu types that are out there
Flu strains change every year
However there is a consistent proven benefit to those who get vaccinated
Do employees go to workplace flu clinics when they are provided?
Significantly more people get a flu shot when a clinic is provided in their workplace
What about testing for large groups?
For groups of 10 or more we will send a registered nurse to your location to do whatever tests you require
We provide this service at all 17 of our province-wide clinics
What is the global impact of the flu?
Each year there an estimated 1 billion cases of influenza
3-5 million cases are severe
Up to 500,000 people die
Millions of cases of the flu are prevented in Canada alone thanks to vaccination
The saved costs of illness, not just to the individual, are estimated to run into the billions of dollars
What is the flu?
It is a highly contagious viral respiratory illness that attacks the nose throat and lungs
Is it serious?
Yes but most of the time it can be managed
Around 3,500 Canadians die each year from the flu and there are over 12,000 related hospital admissions
There are no effective treatments for the flu
Vaccination is the best protection against it
Do you provide other vaccinations during the workplace flu clinic?
For employees whose immunizations are not up to date we can also provide other occupational vaccines such as tetanus hepatitis A and hepatitis B
