Promoting Vaccination in the Workplace
Here at Home Instead Clacton, Frinton and Walton, we have been working hard to promote the uptake of the flu vaccine amongst our team.
As the pandemic continues, we understood that we have a duty to protect not only our client’s but our wonderful team of brave CAREGivers too. While the flu jab doesn’t prevent COVID-19, it helps protect CAREGivers from being hit by a double dose of both the flu and COVID.
This year is likely to be more important than any other year to get the vaccination, research from health companies such as Bupa has shown us the following:
- Many people who are at risk from the flu are also at risk from COVID-19
- If you catch both COVID-19 and flu at the same time, you’re at a much higher risk of becoming seriously unwell
- People who aren’t experiencing flu symptoms can still pass it on to other people who may be at risk of serious illness
We’re proud of our team for getting the flu jab vaccination and happy to be doing our best to be a supportive employer and an outstanding care provider.
All members of the team who get the jab automatically join our role of honour and receive a cash thank you on our CareFriends app.
Well done team!
You too can join our amazing, family-feel team and start making a difference to people's lives today!
