Every year, during the fall and winter months, the U.S. experiences epidemics of seasonal flu. Since there are always many different flu viruses circulating, and they are constantly changing, researchers have developed flu vaccines to protect against the three or four most common viruses. This season, three-component vaccines contain an H3N2, an H1N1 and a B virus. Four component vaccines have an additional B virus component.
Influenza causes thousands of deaths and billions of dollars in lost productivity each year. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends a yearly flu vaccine to protect against influenza. As a business owner, you also need to take action to help protect your business and employees from the flu.
As a proactive measure, encourage consistent hand washing for your employees in your business. Make sure restrooms are stocked with tissues, soap, and hand sanitizers. By doing this, you can help prevent unpleasant cold and flu symptoms before they start. Advise all employees to stay home if they are sick and create work from home opportunities when possible.
