Stop the flu from spreading with these Promotional Health & Anti-Bacterial Products

There is one more reason that makes the winter extra dreadful: the onslaught of colds and the flu. Some might think that they are just minor nuisances but the virus is getting stronger and more fatal. There has been a tremendous surge in flu cases this year. A staggering 40,000 cases of flu have been reported. To date, 68 people have died and it is expected to claim 4,000 lives by the end of the year.

The flu season does not only affect people but also businesses. It is reported that employers bleed out millions of dollars each year due to losses in productivity and staff shortage caused by the flu.

Marketing Campaigns to Protect Against the Flu Virus

Flu vaccination is still the number one measure to prevent the spread of the flu virus. However, not everyone gets vaccinated for fear of experiencing side effects or simply not being informed of its importance. To further promote vaccinations and prevent the spread of viruses, these are the best marketing campaigns to entice people to get flu shots and take better care of themselves.

Employee Awareness Campaigns

Viruses spread easily in workplaces due to the close proximity of employees to each other and breathing the same air with someone who is infected. Giving them a flu prevention pack and reminding them to get vaccinated can do wonders for the health and morale of your staff. Promotional products included in the pack are:

Branded pill boxes

Printed antibacterial wet wipes

Branded Sanitiser

Flu Face Mask

Flu Vaccine Awareness Drive

For doctor’s offices, pharmacies, and hospitals, it is best to use promotional items to attract new patients and retain old ones during the flu shot awareness season. It could be as obvious as using a banner in front of your place of business to announce that you offer free vaccination services. You could also give away little keepsakes such as custom fridge magnets or promotional pens with your business’ contact info to help patients remember you the next time they’re in need of medical services.

Banners

Fridge Magnets

Pens

Promo Giveaways

If your brand has no association with the medical or healthcare industry, you can still do your part in minimising the spread of infection while also promoting your brand. Choose promotional items that are frequently used during this season such as water bottles, sanitisers, wet wipes, and tissues.
