A vaccine is a serum which contains a dead or weakened version of an infectious germ (bacteria or virus). Injecting the vaccine into a person stimulates that person’s immune system to develop antibodies to destroy that germ without making the person sick. Your body’s immune system remembers each disease you have ever fought. By being vaccinated, if you were to catch the ‘real’ germ, your body would rapidly produce the corresponding antibodies again to fight the infection before you show signs or symptoms of the illness.
CHG can provide a range of vaccinations to help employers meet health and safety obligations; protecting staff from the flu and to keep you safe at work.
Many of our vaccination programs, including our influenza vaccinations, can be delivered onsite at your workplace. Vaccinations are performed by our team of fully qualified nurses with immunisation training and CPR.
When delivering onsite immunisation programs, all CHG nurses have access to adrenaline and follow the relevant guidelines for administration and management of anaphylactic reactions. In-service training is regularly provided to ensure nursing staff adhere to current leading practice protocols. Our team are highly experienced in attending worksites and vaccinating in a variety of settings: ranging from 5 – 500 individuals per location, with a variety of immunisations, working within the guidelines of CHG policy and procedures, the Australian Immunisation Handbook and your specific requirements.
