We’re asking “I am. Are you?” as staff receive their flu vaccine

Each year we encourage our staff to receive their free flu vaccination. This year KGH staff are being asked the question “I am. Are you” as we aim to have a 100% response rate from Team KGH.
 
Our staff flu campaign includes posters and video featuring colleagues asking the question “I Am. Are You?” The posters will remind everyone why getting the flu jab is important and who it helps to protect.
  • Protects you, your family and your patients from the flu
  • Protects you, your family and you colleagues from the flu
  • Protects you, your family and those you care for from the flu
The flu clinics were launched with a special session aimed at Estates and Facilities staff. It’s important that these staff members are fully protected as they moving around the Trust and interacting with all departments.
 
To ensure social distancing, departments have been allocated specific dates to attend the flu clinic.
 
Our colleagues are also offered the chance to opt out of being given the flu jab; this maybe because of religious beliefs or dietary needs.
 
With many posters around the Trust we hope that this campaign will encourage everyone to be vaccinated against the flu.
