CIGNA Offers Onsite Flu Clinics to Employer Clients

August 30, 2007 ( - CIGNA HealthCare has teamed with Summit Health to offer onsite flu clinics to CIGNA's employer clients.

According to a press release, the onsite clinics conducted by Summit will be held at customer worksites and can be scheduled at any time. The clinics will be complete with flu vaccines and include health screening and immunization programs.

“The flu is contagious and when employees bring flu to the workplace, it is very likely to spread. A CIGNA On-Site Flu Clinic is an easy way to safeguard a business’s most important asset – its people – against the flu,” said Dr. Allen Wolfe, CIGNA’s national medical director for health advocacy, in the press release. “In addition to avoiding time away from work, the flu vaccine helps protect employees and their families from what can be very serious complications associated with the illness.”

According to figures from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 5% to 20% of the population on average gets the flu in the U.S. each year.
