Darker nights and darker mornings can only mean one thing……..Yes you guessed it, flu season has arrived!!
Information about flu clinics in your area will be published locally. Staff can also approach their manager or contact the firstname.lastname@example.org address to ask about accessing the vaccine in their area.
It is important for the Trust to be able to report on the number of staff vaccinated so it is helpful if any staff receiving the flu jab elsewhere (for example at their GP clinic, at another NHS Trust, pharmacy) inform the Trust that this has happened. This can be done by emailing the same flu email address cited above or with one of your local vaccinators.
What did you say………Love to Shop voucher for every member of staff that receives the vaccine!!
The Trust would like to offer every member of staff that receives a flu vaccination a £20 Love to Shop voucher.
E-Vouchers will be distributed via email, if you are still outstanding yours please email email@example.com with the following details; Name, Job title, Area, Vaccinator. You must claim your voucher by 1st April 2020.
Being immunised against the flu each year is one way that you can help protect your patients, protect your family and protect yourself.
