Flu Season Can Cost Business Big Money - Protect Your Employees
 Each year, flu-related illness costs an estimated $10.4 billion in direct medical expenses and an additional $16.3 billion in lost earnings annually.

Employers can play an important role in preventing flu, helping to protect employees' health, and reducing losses in productivity and revenue.

The Livingston County Health Department is happy to help keep you and your employees healthy this flu season by bringing the flu vaccine directly to your business. Protect your hardworking employees by making the healthy choice to vaccinate an easy choice. We can bill private insurance, as well as Medicaid and Medicare. 

Simply call 815-844-7174 to schedule a time for our trained, caring nurses to stop by your business to administer flu shots. You'll be glad you did!
