As part of the initiative to promote a healthier workplace, the university is offering colleagues the opportunity to be vaccinated against seasonal flu, through fluvouchers.co.uk. The university is meeting the cost and it’s on a voluntary, first come, first served basis during October and November 2019. If you are interested in this offer, please contact Human Resources. A voucher will be provided which can be used to obtain your flu vaccination. This voucher can be used in any participating pharmacy across the UK, including retailers located within 5 miles of the university. Alternatively, you can find your nearest retailer here: https://www.fluvouchers.co.uk/redeem/.
Colleagues who fall into a high-risk health category should already have been offered a free vaccination by their GP, and therefore would not be eligible to participate in this scheme.
In order to promote a healthier workplace, you can also help to prevent colds and flu from spreading. Use a tissue when coughing or sneezing, then throw the tissue away and wash your hands.
