Welcome Flu

Flu is NOT Good for Business

Don't let a preventable illness hurt your bottom line.

Studies show a person with influenza can lose up to 5.9 days from work. In the U.S., this adds up to 75 million lost working days each year and annual lost productivity of an estimated $6.2 billion, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

An annual flu vaccination can help keep workers healthy during flu season.
