What is a company-sponsored flu clinic?
A company sponsored flu clinic is an event during which the employer group hires certified nurses to set-up an on-site “clinic” to offer their employees an opportunity to become immunized without having to leave the office. The CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine as the first and most important step in protecting against flu viruses.
NHP offers on-site flu clinics through a third-party vendor, HealthWatch.
When are the flu clinics scheduled?
To set up a flu clinic, HealthWatch requests a minimum of three weeks lead time to guarantee preferred dates and times.
How much does it cost?
NHP members should review their benefit plan to determine coverage for flu immunizations and bring their ID card to the clinic. The cost for non-covered employees is $25.00 per shot.
HealthWatch will administer 12 shots per hour for a minimum of 50 employees.
