How To Organise A workplace flu vaccination Program In Sydney

A flu shot can protect you from the flu and its related symptoms. Unfortunately, flu is a seasonal virus that can be pretty debilitating, so it’s important to get vaccinated and keep your loved ones healthy. In this blog post, we’ll discuss how you can organise a workplace flu vaccination program in Sydney and ensure that everyone in your workplace gets vaccinated. We’ll also provide tips on what to do after the program is organised, so everything goes smoothly. Let’s get started!

Who should get workplace flu vaccinations?

As the flu season approaches, Sydney (NSW) employers need to take measures to protect their employees. This includes providing onsite flu vaccinations. Everyone who works in close physical contact with others should be vaccinated as a precautionary measure. In addition, those at high risks, such as pregnant women, and those with chronic illnesses such as diabetes, should participate in workplace flu vaccination programs.

How to organise a workplace flu vaccination program?

It’s flu season, so it’s time to organise your workplace flu vaccination services. There are a few things you need to take into account before getting started:

  1. Share promotional material to encourage people to get vaccinated.
  2. Ensure all employees have access to the vaccine Consumers Medicine Information (CMI) and provide information about the side effects of the flu vaccine and information about the consent forms.
  3. Keep reminding your colleagues about the upcoming flu program.
  4. Share the link or instructions to the online booking system.
  5. Keep track of who has been vaccinated and ensure everyone is up-to-date on their vaccinations. With a little organisation, you can help protect your employees from the flu and make work a little bit easier on them!

What happens after the program is organised?

Corporate Care will send you a participant report after the flu program has ended. A list of individuals who attended the clinic will be provided to you. All flu vaccination encounters are uploaded to the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR). In addition, each individual will get an email certificate stating they have received a flu shot.

All flu vaccination providers in Australia must submit all vaccine encounters to the Australian Immunisation Register as of March 2022.

Clients will also receive a link to submit feedback on our services and suggest areas for improvement.

For employees unable to make it to the clinic because they are sick or on holiday, we can issue flu vouchers that can be redeemed at over 2000 chemist partners in Australia. We have hundreds of pharmacies in New South Wales accepting our flu vouchers.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I provide information about the influenza vaccine to employees?

You should be given information about the flu when you engage a flu vaccine provider in Sydney. What is the influenza virus? Frequently asked questions, sales materials, and so on.

The FluSmart Knowledgebase site, for example, is available through Corporate Care. This “flu library” has a wealth of information for employees and employers.

The Australian Immunisation Handbook or The Department of Health are two more interesting government websites worth sharing with your Sydney employees.

What are some common side effects associated with taking a flu vaccine?

After the influenza vaccination, you may experience mild side effects. You’ll recover quickly with little to no complications from most reactions, which last only a few days.

Common influenza side effects include:

  • Pain, redness, swelling or hardness at the injection site.
  • Fever, tiredness and body aches.

Who should administer the flu vaccine to employees?

Nurses lead the majority of workplace vaccination programs. To work independently, Registered Nurses must complete the Nurse immuniser course.

What if an employee at work forgets to get their flu shot?

We can provide pharmacy or GP flu vouchers to workers who cannot make it to the flu clinic because they have been away on vacation, were off sick, or were too busy at the time.

Corporate Care has partnered with all major pharmacy partners throughout Australia and New Zealand. Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra, Perth, Hobart, Adelaide, Sydney, and rural/remote areas have many pharmacies offering flu jabs and accepting our corporate flu vouchers.

Can employees get both the flu and COVID-19 shots at the same time?

According to the Department of Health, “COVID-19 vaccines can be co-administered (that is, given on the same day) with an influenza vaccine. Studies demonstrate the safety and immunogenicity of co-administration of COVID-19 and influenza vaccines”.

Conclusion

Corporate flu vaccinations can help to protect employees from flu and can also help to reduce the spread of the flu virus. Organising a program can ensure that everyone in your workplace is vaccinated and ready to fight the flu. In addition, follow up after the program to ensure that everyone is still protected.
