Concentra Offers Flu Vaccines to Keep America Working
Date:10/15/2007

ADDISON, Texas, Oct. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Concentra, the largest occupational health care provider with 320 centers across the nation, has launched a campaign to educate America's workforce about the flu, how it is spread, and how to protect against it. The company expects to vaccinate nearly 300,000 people across the nation, saving businesses more than $200 million in lost productivity.

Concentra Medical Centers offers flu shot to various businesses and communities to keep America's workforce healthy. Working with more than 150,000 of the country's largest employers, as well as 250 employer-based health facilities, Concentra creates health solutions to keep employees well, fit, and safe -- especially during the flu season.

"Concentra is poised to meet the needs of people across the country by providing flu shots when they need them, delivering the right care at the right time," said W. Tom Fogarty, M.D., Concentra's Chief Medical Officer.

Each year 1 in 5 people become sick with influenza. According to the Centers for Disease Control, one flu shot can save a business more than $1,000 in lost time by an employee who is not vaccinated and comes down with the flu. With nearly 300,000 flu vaccines given by Concentra, the company expects to save the nation's economy more than $200 million through flu prevention.

Known as the flu, influenza is an extremely contagious respiratory infection. Flu symptoms are more severe than those of colds, come on more abruptly, and often include high fever, cough, and full body aches. It can cause severe complications, and result in an average of 36,000 deaths each year. To learn about the top 10 myths and facts about the flu and more, log on to: http://www.concentra.com/Flu.
