FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
MARINA, CA, OCTOBER 20, 2020 – When it comes to the seasonal flu, prevention is powerful tool. As part of Scudder Roofing and Scudder Solar’s initiative to keep their employees safe and healthy, the companies will be hosting a free, day-long flu vaccination clinic for all Scudder employees on October 20th, 2020. The clinic will be held at Scudder’s headquarters, 3342 Paul Davis Drive in Marina, CA.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, anyone 6-months or older should be immunized against the flu every year, with rare exceptions. And with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this season, a flu shot may be more important than ever before. Each year, over 200,000 people are hospitalized with complications from the flu, and during the 2019-2020 season, there were at least 24,000 deaths related to the flu. No one knows what those numbers are going to look like when combined with COVID-19 — a once-in-a-hundred-years pandemic.
Any company that prioritizes the health of all employees is a company that understands health is everything…even in the corporate world. A company-wide flu clinic – especially this year – means a decrease in absenteeism, a boost to productivity, and a cost-effective measure for keeping everyone in the company as healthy and safe as possible. A company vaccination clinic is a safe, comfortable and convenient way to immunize employees and give them the best protection against getting the flu.
“The best way to keep our employees healthy is to be proactive, and a flu shot will work to minimize the risk,” says Pete Scudder, President of Scudder Roofing. “While a flu shot can’t protect us from COVID, it can lessen the risk of flu illness, hospitalization and death. And most importantly, it will help to preserve healthcare resources in our community for the care of patients who do contract COVID-19.”
The bottom line is that no one wants to get the flu or COVID, or worse — both diseases at once. And this year, it’s especially important to do everything in our power to reduce the number of flu cases in this country – not just to protect company employees, but to help protect the entire community.
