What is Influenza?
Influenza, also known as flu, is respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. These viruses are more common during winter, and symptoms include a sudden fever, aches and pains, a dry cough and sore throat. It can cause mild to severe illness, and at times can lead to death. Flu is very infectious and is not treatable with antibiotics.

Flu Vouchers vs On-Site Flu Clinic
Flu vouchers are a cheap and easy way of providing your staff with the ability to have a flu jab at their local pharmacy or surgery. However, it involves the individual having to travel there, find somewhere locally that accepts those specific vouchers and do it in their own time. Regardless of if the flu vouchers are used, they still need to be paid for prior to them being issued. Some organisations state that over a third of flu vouchers purchased go to waste as they are never claimed, partially down to lack of convenience. Although an onsite flu clinic might be more expensive, the convenience for the staff means there is often a higher uptake in vaccinations, which can lead to a reduction in staff sickness over the winter months.
