Learn how flu shot online scheduling software can improve your clinic’s flow
Take the sting out of flu shots with online scheduling software
Getting a shot has got to be one of the least favorite activities I can think of. For something that is over so quickly, it’s still not something I look forward to. Needles. There’s just no way to make those things fun for the people who are getting stuck.
However, with the rise in flu-related hospitalizations and deaths across the country, more and more people are biting the bullet and making an appointment to get the flu vaccine. And as you know, the increase in demand for flu vaccinations can cause major headaches for a clinic, if it’s not prepared.
More and more people are opting to go to convenient pharmacy or walk-in clinic locations for their flu shot, rather than going to their regular doctor. Just drive along any neighborhood with a retail presence and you’ll see “FLU SHOTS AVAILABLE HERE” signs at almost every location that sells aspirin. But what if those vaccines are not really available? What if that clinic has already run out of flu shots? What if they don’t have a tech on duty who can give the shot? The last thing you need is Chicken Little squawking in your clinic about how she can’t get a flu shot and the world is coming to an end.
If you don’t have a good idea of how many people are coming in to get their flu shot, you may not have the supplies, staff, and rooms ready to help everyone who wants it. AppointmentPlus online scheduling software can help you manage your incoming flu shot traffic by providing:
