  • Improve your team’s health and productivity
  • Reduce absenteeism in workplace due to Influenza & COVID-19
  • Help protect your team from Influenza and COVID-19

How it works?

Step 1: Assess how many vaccines you need. Consider your over 65 years old workforce as they are eligible for high dose flu vaccines free of charge. 

Step 2:  Book a day/time that suits your company. We will send you a workplace vaccination form for the staff to fill out prior to the visit.

Step 3: On the day of your onsite clinic, the team will arrive 15-30mins early to set-up the room. The nurse will collect and check the workplace vaccination form for each staff prior to injection. The team will stay 15-30mins after the last vaccination in case of adverse reaction.

Step 4:  Upon completion of the onsite vaccination, we will send you an invoice or any additional documents that you may require.

Things to consider:

  • Ensure that the vaccination/waiting room onsite have enough space to allow for social distancing.
  • Ensure people being vaccinated have completed their consent form prior to attending their appointment.
  • It is important to have a dedicated coordinator in your workplace to be the main contact for the vaccination program.
  • If you are considering to have both the Flu and COVID-19 booster, we will require a COVID-19 vaccine certificate or immunisation history to ensure that the staff is eligible for the booster.

COVID-19 boosters are not mandatory; however, it is highly recommended as it will strengthen your team’s immune system and help maintain a high level of protection against serious illness from the COVID-19 virus.
