The influenza season is coming soon. The best way to prevent seasonal influenza is with an annual vaccination. If you are one of the companies that have opted to provide their employees with the vaccine, Business Health will be contacting you in the near future to set up a date to administer the vaccine to your employees.
The article, "Everyday Preventive Actions That Can Help Fight Germs, Like Flu," developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is a good article to share with your employees. The article explains how flu is spread and what preventive actions you can take to slow the spread of influenza.
If you have any questions regarding providing influenza vaccinations for your employees, as part of your wellness initiatives, please contact Sue Ott, manager of business health, at (920) 568-5018.
