Encourage Your Workers to Get the Flu Shot

October 19, 2020

Have you and your workers received a flu shot? As flu season is quickly approaching, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that individuals have a flu shot by the end of October.

With the pandemic continuing into flu season, many medical experts are concerned about a  possible ‘twindemic’. Last season fewer than half of Americans received the flu shot and 410,000 were hospitalized due to influenza, according to the CDC. Employers should encourage their workers to receive the annual shot to help prevent outbreaks in facilities.

The CDC has helpful resources to promote flu shots like a toolkit specifically for businesses and employers that promotes vaccination in the workplace. There is also a preventive steps website with additional information.

The CDC notes that flu shots help protect against the four flu viruses. Although a flu shot “will not prevent coronavirus…they will reduce the burden of flu illnesses, hospitalizations, and deaths on the health care system and conserve scarce medical resources for the care of people with COVID-19.”
