Incentives and rewards

Staff appreciate recognition for their contributions to the health of others and including an incentive or reward aspect to a staff flu vaccination programme can be effective.

A small treat can have a big impact. Even something as simple as a sticker to show they have had their jab can be worn as a sign of pride and signal to others that they should have the flu vaccination.

Incentives don’t need to cost a lot – be creative, but ensure any reward fits in with your organisations culture and values.

Show weekly vaccination uptake results by team to encourage a bit of competition.

Ensure that the board or governing body agrees on incentives and publicise that they do.
