Passport Health will come on-site to do flu shots for as few as five employees.

Influenza (known commonly as the flu) is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. Infection with this virus can cause illness resulting in mild to severe symptoms with life-threatening complications. An estimated 10-20% of the U.S. population gets the flu each year, with an average of 114,000 hospitalizations and 36,000 deaths.

Symptoms include fever (usually high), headache, extreme tiredness, dry cough, sore throat, runny and/or stuffy nose, and muscle aches. Gastro-intestinal symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea are much more common in children than adults are.

The flu virus is spread from person to person through respiratory droplets by coughing or sneezing. It can also happen when touching the hand of someone with these droplets present, and touching your own nose or mouth before washing your hands.

The single best way to prevent the flu is through vaccination.

In spite of rumors to the contrary, getting a flu shot does NOT give you the flu. You may have a sore arm for a day or so, but it will not set you back. And you will have protection against the flu all winter long. Scheduling flu clinics is an effective way to reduce absences due to the flu.
