According to the Centers for Disease Control:
NOW IS THE IDEAL TIME TO PROVIDE FLU VACCINATIONS in order to ensure the most effective period of immunity.
Vaccinations can keep employees out of the hospital and prevent potential COVID complications. With the current COVID-19 pandemic, the CDC is wary of the similarity in symptoms between influenza and COVID-19. The pandemic means that many hospital resources are strained. Careful flu vaccination programs can keep people from contracting the flu and having to go to the hospital, where they face potential exposure to COVID-19. Vaccination can also keep people from experiencing symptoms that may be confused with COVID-19, which can help prevent unnecessary quarantine periods and loss of work productivity.
All healthy adults are recommended to receive a flu vaccine.
Influenza is a leading cause of missed work and lost productivity. Vaccinations can prevent those losses. In one flu season, the CDC estimates that vaccination programs prevented 7.1 million illnesses, 3.7 million medical visits, 109,000 hospitalizations and 8,000 deaths within a single flu season. Vaccination also prevented hundreds of millions of hours of lost work time, and prevented hundreds of billions of dollars of lost productivity.
