While sending an email to your staff with a link to your booking portal is the quickest and easiest way of asking staff to make their appointments to get a flu vaccination, we understand that only works if your staff are using work emails regularly.
However, if your staff are not desk-bound or part of your office email network, we have alternative ways to promote your program such as:
- Putting posters up around the workplace with a QR code that we supply so staff can book their appointment on their own phone; or
- Walking around the workplace with an internet-enabled tablet to allocate staff their own appointment time. Your staff then get emailed a link to finish booking their appointment online.
These may also be helpful to encourage staff who don't quite get around to actioning the email you sent them and ensure that the maximum number of people receive a vaccine.
Staff will of course still be able to come to the clinic without an appointment but because we need to collect some extra information about them so we can add their vaccination record to the Australian Immunisation Register, we will be asking them to register online before they see the nurse. This will be able to be done on their own phone with a QR code or using an internet-enabled tablet which we ask each workplace to provide for their clinic.
