Workplace Flu Vaccine Program
Registration is now open for Workplace Flu Vaccines for the 2014-2015 Flu Season.
- Beginning: Oct. 1, 2014
- Days/Time: Monday – Friday, 7am-6pm
Greenwich Hospital’s Occupational Health Services helps employers keep their workforce healthy with a cost-effective, onsite flu vaccine program. The program begins October 1st. The Centers for Disease Control recommends that people get their seasonal flu vaccine as soon as it becomes available in their community. Vaccination before December is best since this timing ensures that protective antibodies are in place before flu activity is typically at its highest.
Shots are administered by registered nurses from Occupational Health Services and Greenwich Hospital.
