 Avoid the flu in your workplace with help from Wegmans

 

It seems hard to believe, but fall is right around the corner! It can be difficult to avoid getting sick during the upcoming winter months, but doing things like eating right, exercising, and being immunized against the flu can help to keep you and your employees healthy. The flu has been responsible for over 100 million sick days in a season! Luckily, you can help your employees by having an on-site flu shot clinic early in the season. 

 

In order to be protected for the upcoming flu season, a person must get a flu shot every year. The best time to get immunized is September and October. Flu activity starts as early as late October and can run through the early spring. A single shot in the fall will last through the end of flu season. Injectable flu vaccine is a dead virus, so you can't get the flu from a flu shot. The flu shot is often covered in full under most health plan's medical benefit.

 

Wegmans is available for on-site flu clinics for all businesses. Wegmans can bill insurances and there are no fees associated with the clinic. The 2014-2015 flu vaccine is now available and you can contact Wegmans to book a flu shot clinic at your business.
