Workplace immunisations

We can visit workplaces to give employees flu vaccine and other vaccines tailored to your workplace.

Workplace immunisation can offer many benefits for employers, including:

  • Reduction of sick days for staff
  • Increased safety in the workplace – illness can slow reaction times by 20-40%
  • Compliance with Workplace Health & Safety Regulations
  • Protection against vaccine preventable diseases and unnecessary outbreaks
  • Improved staff morale by showing an interest in employee health and wellbeing
