When it comes to avoiding the flu this season, nothing beats the flu shot. Why get a flu shot? Influenza (flu) is a contagious respiratory disease with symptoms that can range from fever, cough, chills, and sore throat to severe headache, muscle aches, dehydration, and even death. Every year in the United States alone there are more than 200,000 people hospitalized from flu complications and more than 36,000 deaths. This acute virus can be contagious from one (1) day before symptoms begin through up to five (5) days after. That means you can pass on the flu to someone else even before you know you are sick! Your flu shot protects you, your family, your coworkers, and the whole community. Resources Flu vaccines: myths and facts All you need to know about the flu vaccine Back to top Why Passport Health?

Protecting You from Risk Passport Health flu clinics operate under strict, time-tested protocols to protect you: Protection from liability. We can provide, upon request, proof of liability insurance, which covers our staff and creates a risk-free environment for you as the employer. Protection from emergencies. Every person receiving a vaccine is screened by a trained vaccine expert. And just in case, our nurses are equipped with emergency kits (including Epinephrine and Benadryl) to manage any unexpected adverse reactions. Protection from contamination. Your employees will receive vaccines that have been stored under strict FDA guidelines and are transported, according to those same guidelines, on the day of the clinic. Nurses collect used syringes/needles in sharps containers supplied by Passport Health. The More, the Healthier! Each employee who comes down the flu can cost your organization hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars. As participation increases, the impact of flu season on your bottom line decreases. We offer several solutions to help boost participation among your employees: The convenience of on-site. An average person will be far less likely to seek out a flu shot on their own. Convenience counts, and having the shots on-site dramatically increases employee participation. The power of advertising. We send you customizable email templates, posters and other promotional materials to help you encourage your employees to participate. The efficiency of online scheduling. 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. A Trusted Reputation Our repeat clients include many Texas state agencies, like the Department of State Health Services and TABC, as well as organizations like Texas Medical Liability Trust, Capital Metro, Texas Disposal Systems, Toyota and many more!
