Protect Against Flu
With all the attention on Covid-19 over the past several years, the effects of getting the flu (aka influenza) may have been overlooked. But this other serious respiratory illness can be highly unpleasant and even deadly. Furthermore, this virus can have a damaging effect on the productivity and profitability of any UK business. Thus, proactive employers will protect their workforces now by giving their employees access to the flu vaccine.
Emcare Travel Clinic provides a quadrivalent vaccine, which protects against four of the most commonly circulating flu viruses. It only takes a matter of minutes to administer and is virtually painless. Most recipients have no side effects. Those vaccinated will be protected against one of the of the most common and potentially deadly viruses. This vaccine is not a live one; therefore, it cannot cause the flu.
