  • Worksite -The Wellness Company offers flu shot clinics to employers with a guaranteed minimum of 35 participants. All work shifts and weekend schedules may be accommodated.Online Registration – We offer online registration for your worksite flu event. This allows us to be more efficient, minimizing employee time away from work and simplifying the coordination efforts with the employer’s representative. With online registration we can keep track of how many employees have signed up and let you know if we may need to extend/decrease your clinic time. You may opt to set up your event with specific appointment times or open registration.Families Invited (optional) – Many employers take the opportunity to include family members in their event. The Wellness Company welcomes any participant 18 years and older at a worksite event.Cost – Employers may elect to pay on behalf of those participants not covered under a participating health plan or they may indicate that employees will “self-pay” at the flu event.For more information, please contact Kim Balasco at 270-4480 or kbalasco@thewellcomp.com
