The flu is a very contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses and is easily spread by coughing, sneezing, and even touching something infected with a flu virus. Healthy adults can spread the virus to others even before they develop symptoms. According to the Center for Disease Control (www.cdc.gov), every year in the United States a significant portion of the population gets the flu.
In senior group and nursing homes, where the flu outbreak can travel like wildfire, immunization protection is critical since residents are considered high risk by the Center for Disease Control. Medicare Part B provides total compensation for recipients to be immunized every year.
Routine business operations are the perfect breeding ground for the flu and under the right circumstances, the flu can easily devastate a company. Researchers have showed that employers can save substantial money offering vaccinations, and the sooner in the flu season the shots are offered the better. By having an annual VaxPro flu shot clinic, your company will save money by decreasing absences due to sickness.
