Flu Prevention

How to keep your employees and your business healthy

There are many things in life worth sharing. But the flu isn’t one of them. Before flu season begins, read about risk factors and symptoms external page, and check out our prevention resources. We can help you arrange for a flu shot clinic at your workplace, to make getting a flu shot more convenient for everyone. You can help your employees stay healthy by setting up a flu shot clinic at your workplace. It’s easy to arrange, and all of your employees are eligible on a fee-for-service basis paid by the employer — even if they’re not Kaiser Permanente members. Contact your Kaiser Permanente representative to learn more and schedule a worksite flu clinic.
