Flu Vaccination Clinics for Employers in Kent, Renton, WA & More!
Seasonal influenza, or the flu, is not just another cold. The virus is common but can be dangerous, affecting millions of patients each year. Between sick time, lost productivity and healthcare costs, the flu can cost businesses up to $10.4 billion dollars each year. The most effective way to prevent the flu from spreading throughout your business is by scheduling a flu vaccination clinic with AFC Urgent Care Southcenter.
Why should employees get the flu shot each year?
The flu vaccine is the most effective form of flu prevention because it exposes the body to a weakened or dead sample of the current, active strain of the virus. The flu shot provides protection against the current strain of the flu virus for up to six months, or most of the flu season. The recommended time frame for getting the flu shot is between September and mid-October, which allows your body time to adjust to the shot before the flu begins to spread through the community. The vaccine takes about two weeks to become effective because your body requires time to develop antibodies, or an immune response to the virus.
