Flu Shot Clinic at American Traveler Corporate office On September 25th, The American Traveler corporate office in Boca Raton, Florida invited members of our team to get vaccinated and stay healthy during the 2014/2015 flu season. A great success last year, this fall season proved no different as the Open Flu Shot Clinic got underway with two pharmacists from CVS. In collaboration with our travel nurses and entire healthcare team, we are proud to raise awareness about the kinds of corporate and community service that allow us to “do our part” in reducing the spread of the flu during influenza season. As Beth Beam, Business Development Manager pictured here says: "Our office works very close together to support each other in everything we do, and I promised to hold Nancy’s (from Account Management) hand while she got her flu shot." Like a lot of people, Nancy doesn’t care for needles, but like everyone the world over she’d rather not have the flu! Make sure to protect yourself and get vaccinated! [+]

flu shot clinicEvery year corporate team members diligently remind healthcare professionals about the benefits of an annual flu vaccine.  This is why, in solidarity with our traveling nurses and allied healthcare professionals, and in support of our employees’ health, we made it extra easy for corporate employees to get a flu shot this year. We did this by sponsoring an on-site flu clinic at our corporate headquarters in Florida. It was the first event of its kind, and so well received that we plan to make it an annual affair! Our thanks go out to our corporate employees, who rolled up their sleeves so willingly.  A visiting CVS pharmacist and technician helped everything run smoothly—no surprise, there, as CVS is well known for providing flu shots at a low cost. As everyone knows, getting more people vaccinated is a goal of the CDC and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services; they would like to see more healthcare workers outside the nursing sector follow the R.N.s’ example when it comes to getting vaccinated.  Click on Vaccine Information Statement to find out everything you need to know to protect your health this flu season.

R.N.s and physical therapists who work for American Traveler take every precaution to avoid the flu. They know their first and best defense is to get a flu shot or nasal spray. Like most top tier staffing agencies, our healthcare professionals must show proof of vaccination once a year, and are glad to provide patients with everything they need to know about protecting themselves during flu season, October through December. Spreading the word about the importance of an annual flu shot means you’re in good company with the Center for Disease Control. The CDC recommends that everyone 6 months-old and up get vaccinated. The 2011-2012 flu strain is identical to last year’s, including the H1N1 virus; that means if you were vaccinated last year, you need only receive 1 shot this go around.
