We also understand how important your employees, students, and family members are to you, and why it is important for them to be protected. Staying healthy during flu season means fewer lost days at work, fewer children missing school, and fewer family members home sick and in need of care. How can Passport Health help you stay healthy? It’s all about flu shots! Why is a flu shot important? The flu is a highly contagious disease that affects the reparatory system. The symptoms can be mild, such as fever, cough, chills, and sore throat, but they can also be serious, causing headaches, muscle aches, dehydration, and even death. More than 200,000 people are hospitalized every year in the United States from flu complications, and the disease causes more than 36,000 deaths. And what’s worse, you can pass the flu on before you even know you have it! Influenza can be spread from one (1) day before symptoms begin through up to five (5) days after. Your flu shot doesn’t just protect you. It protects your family and your community as well.

We protect you from more than the flu Every clinic with Passport Health operates under a strict structure that has been created through years of experience: Fully insured. Proof of Insurance can be provided upon request. We accept the liability for the clinic, giving you one less thing to worry about. Two, if you count the flu! Emergency readiness. Anyone who receives a flu vaccine with Passport Health is asked a series of questions to ensure their safety, and in the unlikely event of an emergency, our nurses are equipped with emergency kits, including epinephrine, to be prepared for any unexpected reaction. Care for materials. All Passport Health vaccines are stored and transported according to FDA guidelines, taking careful notes to ensure that there is no risk of spoilage. All potentially hazardous materials are meticulously collected by our nurses at the end of the clinic and taken off site. Maximizing employee participation The more employees who receive a flu shot, the less impact the flu season will have on your company’s health and productivity. That’s why we help you maximize participation: On-site convenience. Your employees are far more likely to receive a flu shot from an on-site flu clinic than they are to seek one out on their own. Convenience counts. Spreading the word. Passport Health will help you encourage your employees to participate by providing you customizable email templates, posters, and other materials. Online efficiency. For large clinics, we offer an online sign up system that will stagger the flow of your employees into the clinic. This helps eliminate lines and minimizes the time the employee is away from his or her work.
