When flu season occurs, businesses and other organisations can suffer huge losses in terms of unplanned absences, sick leave, and reduced productivity.  For those looking for strategies to combat these losses, as well as demonstrating a commitment to employee health and wellbeing, flu vaccination services can deliver a real and measurable impact.

AVS will be working with all manufacturers in 2019 to ensure that we have a guaranteed supply for our clients. As most of the 2019 supply has been allocated, please contact us for availability.

Our flu vaccination program funds Indigenous healthcare capability

Aboriginal children are up to 6 times more likely to suffer from some vaccine preventable diseases and mortality rates among Aboriginal children are higher than non-Aboriginal children.  Vaccination of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children is more often delayed, which is reflected in around 6% lower coverage at 12 months of age compared to other children. It is very important that vaccines due in the first year of life are given on time, to get the most protection when babies are most vulnerable.  A key challenge of delivering immunisation programs to regional and remote populations is that only nurses and doctors are authorised to administer vaccinations.

“Training Aboriginal health workers makes sense because we are already working with Aboriginal children living in remote locations and are trusted by the communities where we live.” Gail Yarran, Registered Nurse from Derbarl Yerrigan.

Historically, immunisation has been and remains, a simple, timely, effective and affordable way to improve Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s health, delivering positive outcomes for Australians of all ages.

Integrity Health & Safety has partnered with the Australian College of Nursing to offer positions for Indigenous Nurses to complete the Immunisation for registered Nurses and Midwives course, so that they may deliver vaccinations to their own communities in a culturally safe and appropriate way. This is an opportunity for our clients to affect meaningful and long-term benefit to Indigenous communities.
