Getting a flu shot matters
Influenza is a leading reason for sick time and loss of productivity at work. Many people infected with the flu will need to stay home from work for as many as three to five days. Flu vaccination is an important part of your occupational health program to help reduce avoidable absences.
Influenza can spread rapidly in closed working environments, leaving several employees absent and those remaining struggling to cope with the increased workload.

What Our Clients Say
"We have used Polaris Travel Clinic for the past two years for our flu clinics at McLeod Law and definitely plan to continue to use them for future clinics. We have found them to be extremely professional, organized and efficient at progressing through each clinic quickly and on time. All staff were very friendly and easy to deal with and were very flexible in handling quickly changing schedules and making time for those who had not booked a specific appointment time. They spent as much time as each person needed and were very helpful in answering questions and responding to concerns. Many people (including me) found the entire process (including the injection) to be the best experience in having a flu shot."
Danielle Slack, McLeod Law
