Influenza rapidly spreads around the world in seasonal epidemics and imposes a considerable economic burden in the form of health care costs and low productivity. In New Zealand, Influenza virus or "the flu," routinely affects between 10 and 20 percent of the population resulting in reduced productivity and absenteeism.
Unlike coronavirus a vaccine is available to provide protection to your staff from the seasonal influenza epidemic. Various types of influenza vaccines have been available and used for more than 60 years. They are safe and effective in preventing both mild and severe outcomes of influenza. By providing vaccinations for your staff you will minimise additional stress caused by absence due to illness over the winter period.
At Habit Health we pride ourselves on providing a quality vaccination service to our customers by ensuring that we have robust booking processes and highly trained vaccinators. On the day, a registered nurse will ensure that everyone receiving a vaccination will be well cared for.
The vaccination can be provided at any of our Habit Health workplace listed locations, or at your company offices nationwide for larger staff volumes. We also provide a nationwide voucher system for companies with employees in remote locations.
