Why flu prevention is important to your Business!

Why flu prevention is important to your Business!

If you or your employees get sick this flu season, how much could it cost your business?

You never forget the flu, it can hit quickly and last for a few weeks, meaning time off work or school and staying away from family and friends. For vulnerable Victorians, like children, the elderly and people with a chronic condition or weakened immune system, the flu can have serious and devastating outcomes.

Influenza isn’t like the common cold; it is a highly contagious viral infection that can cause severe illness and life-threatening complications, including pneumonia. The flu virus is found in almost invisible little droplets from saliva, sneezes, coughs and runny noses. The virus can travel up to two metres and live on surfaces for up to 48 hours and is spread when people touch an infected surface.

Learn more about how your organisation can help promote flu vaccination using communication and campaign resources from the Department of Health and Human Services
