Protect your family, your colleagues and yourself against flu this year

Flu vaccines available now from The Travel Clinic, Ipswich.

Influenza or flu is a respiratory illness associated with infection by influenza virus. Symptoms frequently include headache, fever, cough, sore throat, aching muscles and joints. Influenza occurs most often in winter and usually peaks between December and March in the northern hemisphere. Illnesses resembling influenza that occur in the summer are usually due to other viruses. The influenza virus is unstable and new strains and variants are constantly emerging.

The flu vaccine is a preventive measure to help avoid catching flu. The immunisation provides protection against the flu virus for the whole flu season and lasts for one year.

Immunisation against influenza is effective and safe. The World Health Organisation recommends the vaccine strains by predicting those viruses most likely to cause outbreaks in any given year. The flu vaccine prevents up to 90 percent of cases helping to ensure your employees are working to the best of their ability through the winter. By offering employees influenza vaccinations, organisations recognise a low cost and employees benefit as well making good commercial sense.
