How many people can a nurse vaccinate per session?
With careful advance planning and enough space to allow for social distancing, our specialist flu vaccination nurses can vaccinate up to 25 people per hour.
All immunisation programmes have to be carefully considered due to the risk of infection and even more so since the emergence of coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2. To safely deliver a vaccination session with a vaccination goal of 20 people per hour, a space that allows small numbers of patients arriving in a steady stream throughout the day is required. Many of our clients choose a location with a one-way system so that people can arrive and leave without interacting.
Another thing to consider is the promptness of your staff. There is very little our nurses can do if employees arrive late to appointments or arrive inappropriately dressed i.e. in long-sleeve shirts. Your staff should arrive on time and in attire that makes it easy to access the top of the arm for vaccination.
Any delays to the day will impact how many employees can be vaccinated during any one session. We discuss this with you during the booking process and our online booking system helps to utilise the nurse time to ensure all your employees who do want a flu vaccine, have one.
