Broadgate GP provide both a flu vaccination clinic for private patients and a corporate flu vaccination service where a specially trained healthcare provider travels to your company premises and delivers the vaccine to your staff. This provides a cost effective method of reducing the cost of absenteeism, and offering a benefit to your employees. The vaccination costs are based on the number of staff vaccinated.
You can reduce the effect of the flu virus on your workforce by immunisation with the seasonal flu vaccine. This years’ flu vaccine includes the H1N1 “swine flu” component and this will be an opportunity for everyone outside the high-risk groups to be vaccinated against swine flu, using the traditional seasonal flu vaccine rather than the specially made pandemic vaccines introduced in the autumn of 2010.
Broadgate Private GP offer a great range of services that include Flu Vaccination.

FLU VACCINATIONS IN THE WORKPLACE
During the winter, flu is a highly contractible viral infection that affects all ages. In order to control and reduce the number of people affected, a vaccine is produced every year based on the strains the flu virus causes to the general public.
When a person suffers form fever, headaches, aching muscles, chills, cough or other respiratory symptoms, these are the signs of a flu virus coming along.
The Flu virus can be very serious if it’s not treated and can lead to serious illness or even death, especially in the very young, the elderly and those with poor immunity. Influenza viruses are also very easily transmitted through close contact with one another, crowded situations, the use of public transport, working environment such as your office and with the general public. People who are over the age of 65 years, medical problems, asthma, emphysema, heart disease, low immunity or even diabetic related people have a higher risk in catching the flu virus.
The Swine Flu is thought to have originated from pigs and given the name from a specific strain of influenza.
The most common symptoms are a dry cough, diarrhoea, fever, headache, sore throat and feeling generally unwell. In other words, the symptoms are very similar to seasonal flu. Most people recover within a week, even without special treatment, but residual symptoms may last longer.
In this day and age, there are no known cures for colds or the flu, so making sure that you don’t get the virus is the main goal. Getting the flu vaccination is the most effective way in tackling the flu virus. Below is a list of measures you should take to reduce the the chances of contracting the flu.
