What is seasonal flu?
Seasonal flu is a viral illness spread by coughs and sneezes. People can catch it all year round but it's more common in winter, which is why it's known as seasonal flu. It’s easily spread and can affect a large number of working adults of all ages.
How we can help you protect your employees against flu?
The average employee missed 5.8 days of work in 2019.** Minor illness, including flu, is often the most common cause of short-term absence for the majority of organisations.***
There may be an increase in flu cases this autumn due to the lack of exposure to the flu virus last winter driven by reduced social interaction. Therefore, it's important to receive a flu jab.
Offering flu vaccinations is a simple and cost-effective way to care for your employees and reduce absence.
We can protect your workforce against flu from as little as £10.50 per person.****

No, the service is exempt from VAT.
Seasonal flu vaccinations can usually be considered a minor and trivial benefit and therefore exempt from tax as a benefit in kind. However, we strongly recommend agreeing the tax treatment with your HMRC contact.
Unfortunately, once e-vouchers are purchased they are non-refundable.
We are unable to provide details of which of your employees, or how many, received a flu vaccination.
