This moring, HealthCare 21 Business Coalition (HC21), in partnership with Trotter Incorporated, hosted our annual Flu Shot Clinic for all employees of the offices located at 625 Market Street. Nurses from the University of TN Medical Center were onsite to administer vaccinations in our 9th floor board room. There was also free educational materials available related to health and wellness in our community.
Up to 20% of the American workforce contracts the flu each season, so preventive steps, such as vaccinations, go a long way in keeping us healthy, happy and productive. HC21 is glad to be ablt to offer our community another venue that makes getting their preventive flu shot a little easier.
The CDC has reported the flu that’s been detected this year is a milder strain, and early signs are that the vaccine is shaping up to be a good match. We hope you’ll consider vaccination as a means of prevention this year.
