Communications


There will be a joint communication and promotion campaign launched promoting the ‘Free Flu Voucher’ scheme to all employees from Royal Mail and the Unions raising awareness of the scheme and encouraging take-up.


The communications campaign is planned to begin in September with the Flu Voucher letters arriving in early October.


Communications will be aligned to the Government Flu Jab scheme for this year as summarised above.


So a further improvement has been made in both the NHS and RMG schemes this year and hopefully this will encourage a greater take-up especially following the Coronavirus pandemic.


Considering the risk of flu and Covid-19 co-circulating this winter, we are encouraging members to have the flu jab to reduce their risk of getting flu, becoming unwell and passing it onto family, friends and work colleagues.


Having the flu vaccine is the best defence against the virus and increases people’s chance of having better health outcomes. It is advised to have the jab as early as possible before the flu virus becomes widespread in the autumn and winter months across the UK.


Further details and communications will be issued in due course.


Yours sincerely


Dave Joyce National Health, Safety & Environment Officer
