Flu Awareness Poster Kit
It is estimated that 1 in 5 Americans will contract influenza, or the “flu,” each year. According to the Immunization Action Coalition, the flu is the most frequent cause of death in the U.S. from a vaccine-preventable illness.
Each year, between 15 and 60 million Americans get the flu, missing up to 70 million workdays. On average, 23,000 people will die from the flu in any given year. The flu has a staggering effect on businesses and the overall economy each year. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) states that the seasonal flu will cost businesses nearly $10.5 billion annually in direct costs for hospitalizations and outpatient visits for adults. This doesn’t even include such costs as sick pay, work delays, and lost productivity.
The net effect of the flu on the U.S. economy totals at least $87 billion in lost productivity and direct costs associated with medical treatment. One out of ten lost work days are attributed to the flu. It is estimated that 10%- 2% of all employee absences are due to employees contracting the virus. The Disability Management Employer Coalition estimates that employees who come to work with the flu increase overall lost workdays by 10%-30%
