Are your staff or workmates protected against the flu this year?
Bendigo Community Health Services nurses have been out and about safely delivering more flu shots in businesses across Greater Bendigo keen to protect their staff this Winter.
Among recent stops were long-term supporters Poyser Motor Group and Metroid Electrical Engineering.
With the symptoms of flu and Coronavirus very similar, it’s important we get as many people vaccinated as possible this year.
We’ve got lots of stock so if you’d like us to visit your workplace just email email@example.com or call 5406 1477 and speak to our workplace health co-ordinator Brooke.
We’ve also got plenty of general vaccines if you need one to visit a loved one or friend in aged care or just want to protect yourself and your family. Call our Client Services team on 5406 1200 if you still need a flu shot.
