Occupational Vaccines & Flu

Protect employees against flu and hazardous pathogens with key vaccines

What are occupational vaccines & workplace flu vaccines?

Occupational - Certain jobs bring the employee into contact with hazardous pathogens against which there is an effective vaccine. In this case it may be appropriate to vaccinate them to reduce their risk.

Influenza - Workplace flu vaccinations are delivered to your employees each year to protect them against the most common strains of flu.

The business case


An employer has a ‘Duty of Care’ to eliminate or minimise known risks to health. Vaccination against avoidable diseases such as Hepatitis B is safe and effective, and helps employers fulfil this duty where employees are exposed to harmful pathogens. Once the initial course of vaccines is complete, employees may be immune for life, or may need booster vaccinations routinely but this is usually no more frequent that every five years, depending on the diseases being vaccinated against. We monitor when vaccinations are due and can get in touch to let you know so you can be confident your team are up to date with all necessary vaccinations.

The Flu vaccine reduces the chances of employees becoming ill and needing time off work, and if they do still get the flu (no vaccine is 100% effective) then their symptoms may be less severe. Similarly, by providing even just some employees with immunity, it reduces the number of opportunities for the virus to spread. This means less sickness over all, both at work and at home.

Offering a free flu vaccine shows your employees you care about their wellbeing, and employees who are healthy and happy at work are likely to be more productive and loyal to their employer. We also provide Flu FAQs for those who aren’t sure whether it’s right for them.


A flu jab only takes a few minutes per person, and downtime is minimal as we come to you on a convenient date and provide all paperwork for employees to complete before we arrive. All they have to do is pop along at an agreed time, have a quick chat with the nurse, have their vaccination and they’re free to go back to work. If you need to accommodate different shifts / different sites / catch people at specific times, tell us what you need and we’ll make it work.


We use mobile temperature controlled fridges to transport our vaccines and our nurses carry all appropriate clinical supplies and equipment to every site. The nurse will always check the vaccine is suitable for each individual before administering it and give advice about aftercare.


Delivery method:

  • Vaccines delivered on-site - minimum charge applicable – best for group bookings

  • Vaccines delivered on-site in AHM mobile clinic - minimum charge & mobile hire applicable – best for group bookings

  • Vaccines delivered at AHM clinic - Canterbury, West London, East London, Bexhill – best for “one offs”, or people who missed our site visit

Service levels:

Occupational vaccines:


We aim to offer a date for occupational vaccines within 10 working days at AHM clinics but can usually find appointments the same week.


Occupational vaccines  delivered on-site can usually be accommodated within 2 weeks, but very occasionally during busier periods there can be up to a 4 week wait.

Workplace flu vaccinations:

The flu vaccine is made to order each year, and orders must be placed in the Spring (although we often have limited stock available for later bookings so do get in touch). Please let us know as early as possible each year approximately how many vaccines you will need so we can make sure we have enough for you.


The flu season runs from the end of September through to January. We will work with you to find a convenient date during that period and can fit around your schedule – need an early morning or lunchtime session? Just let us know and we’ll find a date that suits. 

Because everybody wants flu vaccines at the same time of year, we also start getting bookings as early as Spring, so the more notice you can give us, the more flexible we can be with dates.
