At BizHealth, we provide flu vaccinations to employees as part of our health program.

Influenza (the flu) is an acute viral illness, costing Australian businesses millions of dollars every year in absenteeism and sick leave. Initially affecting around 20% of staff, influenza’s highly contagious nature means it spreads rapidly. It also takes an average of two weeks to recover from, creating extreme productivity losses in the workplace. Calling a professional corporate health provider like BizHealth can help you avoid this harm to your business.

Immunisation is the single most effective action of preventing the spread of the flu in your workplace, with scientific research showing the flu vaccination reduces the risk by 70-90% in healthy people. This translates to a 43% reduction in absenteeism or 74 fewer lost days per 100 employees.

What you need to know about flu vaccination

The flu vaccine can not be used against the common cold. A cold or the flu are caused by different viruses and the vaccine provided against the flu can not be used against cold. Learn more here.The influenza vaccination provided is designed to fight the strains of influenza circulating in the current year, and it’s not designed to fight the avian influenza ( also known as bird flu).For more information, click here.
Myth

The Flu vaccine Contains the Flu virus

Fact

Flu vaccinations doesn’t contain any live virus, it is a mixture of protein and previous strains of influenza that are design to fight the dominant strain of influenza during each year recommended by the World Health Organisation (WHO). The Australian Influenza Vaccine Committee (AIVC) take in this recommendation and choose whether to implement or ignore these Vaccines to Australian residents.

Myth

Influenza Is Not that serious!

Fact

The flu virus is a highly contagious virus and it can be life threatening in some cases – it can cause an estimate of 1,500 deaths, 118,000 hospitalisations and 300,000 GP consultations annually in Australia. Although, many cases are deemed as non-threatening it is highly advised that an individual would seek medical advice in case of a more infectious virus strain.

AIVC recommendations for the composition of influenza vaccine for Australia in 2022:

The Australian Influenza Vaccine Committee (AIVC) met on Wednesday 6th October 2021, to recommend the composition of the influenza virus vaccines for 2022. At this meeting, the expert committee reviewed and evaluated data related to epidemiology, antigenic and genetic characteristics of recent influenza isolates circulating in Australia and the Southern Hemisphere, serological responses to the 2020-2021 vaccines, and the availability of candidate vaccines viruses and reagents.

The committee recommended that the following viruses be included in quadrivalent influenza vaccines for the 2022 Southern Hemisphere influenza season:

an A/Victoria/2570/2019 (H1N1)pdm09-like virus;

an A/Darwin/9/2021 (H3N2)-like virus;

a B/Austria/1359417/2021-like (B/Victoria lineage) virus; and

a B/Phuket/3073/2013-like (B/Yamagata lineage) virus.

an A/Wisconsin/588/2019 (H1N1)pdm09-like virus;

an A/Darwin/6/2021 (H3N2)-like virus;

a B/Austria/1359417/2021 (B/Victoria lineage)-like virus; and

a B/Phuket/3073/2013 (B/Yamagata lineage)-like virus.

The composition of trivalent influenza vaccines is recommended to include the H1N1, H3N2 and the B Victoria lineage virus.
