On-Site Influenza Vaccine Program for Schools & Colleges
One of the most important things you can do for your students is play an active role in keeping them healthy. Students can be sick with the flu for a week or more, which may cause them to miss school, have a negative impact on their education, and put other students and faculty at risk. For these reasons, it’s important for school administrators to offer protection for their students from the flu, helping to keep them healthy and in class. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), vaccination against the flu each year is the single best way to help prevent influenza.
As one of the nation’s largest providers of immunizations and wellness services, Maxim offers a hassle-free program to vaccinate your students through convenient on-site clinics. Vaccination for faculty and staff is also available. Maxim provides a complete turn-key program that’s simple for your staff and valuable for your students. Our flu program features everything necessary to deliver a valuable program including: support for pre-event communication and education, physician orders, vaccine inventory management, experienced clinical personnel, and medical waste removal.
The country's recent experience with H1N1 has helped to increase public awareness of the many benefits of immunization. With the 2011 seasonal influenza vaccine containing the pandemic H1N1 strain, we are expecting a greater demand for vaccination than ever before. Our partnerships within local communities have resulted in the vaccination of over 12 million people in the last five years alone. Furthermore, our infrastructure of local Maxim branch offices allows us to provide vaccinations to local staff and serve almost every area of the country.
The flu is a serious illness that kills more Americans every year than all other vaccine-preventable diseases combined.2
