Fall is right around the corner, so that means you may be thinking about how to market the flu shot to your employees. Just like last year, flu symptoms are very similar to covid symptoms; getting a flu shot can save lives and resources. Not to mention, having healthy employees benefits the company as sick time is significantly reduced. Although flu season is unpredictable, you shouldn’t take any chances. Consider hosting an on-site clinic or encouraging employees to visit a network pharmacy/provider. Regardless, education about the flu shot is very important.
Sending email blasts, displaying posters in the office, even a direct mail reminder with specific steps on how to get a flu shot will be beneficial to communicate with your employees. That way, it takes the guesswork out of research for the employee. If you are interested in hosting an onsite clinic, please contact our strategic wellness consultant to begin the facilitation process; keep in mind that the minimum range for participation varies from 25-50 participants.
Finally, common myths employees have about the flu shot range from the flu vaccine makes you sick, vaccines aren’t safe, the flu isn’t bad, etc. Consider promoting this Get the Facts flyer to your employees in time for flu season.
