Vaccination & Immunisation
From influenza, also known as flu, to travel vaccines, make sure your workforce is protected from illness by ensuring they have the right Vaccination & Immunisation for their needs.
Flu Vaccination & Immunisation
The flu virus is highly contagious and often adapts regularly to fight changes in medicines and vaccines. Because of this, vaccines are often brought out on an annual basis and are available in 3-strain and 4-strain vaccinations.
Flu spreads easily through coughing, sneezing and contact with infected surfaces, which means both your employees and your business may suffer.
How can you limit the disruption to your business?
Flu vaccinations help protect employees from contracting flu and prevents the spread of flu between colleagues, customers and their families. It also provides you with the best possible defence against absenteeism when flu epidemics take hold.
When is the ideal time to purchase flu vaccinations for your workforce?
Typically, the flu season starts in October, with the peak in January or February, and can continue into May. It is important to be proactive with a flu prevention strategy as early as September to help reduce the spread of flu in your workplace.
At Kays Medical, you can pre-order your flu vaccines and arrange for a member of our team to visit your site before flu season hits. We will source the best and most competitively priced flu vaccines for you whilst offering guaranteed supply on pre-orders. We can also administer the vaccines to your entire workforce, across one or multiple sites.

Corporate Vaccination Programs
Immunisation is an important tool in disease prevention in the workforce and can help to protect employees who are most at risk. Ensure your workforce is protected from illnesses by providing them with the correct vaccinations for their job.
There is a legal obligation to assess the risks you expose your employees to. Where there is high risk, precautions must be taken to minimise the potential for harm.
Vaccination programs are just one area that can limit some of the hazards in high-risk occupations, where contact with blood-borne viruses may be frequent.
We can arrange for one of our occupational health specialists to visit your premises, at a time that suits you, to ensure your vaccination policy is administered effectively and efficiently, with as little disruption to your workforce as possible.
This is the ideal programme to ensure those employees in high-risk areas, who are exposed to potential blood-borne viruses, are protected as best as possible:
- First aid
- Emergency services
- Needle exchange services
- Embalming / Crematorium / Mortuaries
- Laboratory technicians
- Council workers: street cleaners / refuse disposal
- Prison and detention services
- Tattooing and body piercing
- Social services
- Plumbing and sewage workers
- Military personnel
All of our advice is comprehensive and we will always provide a program tailored to your needs.
