SCV-based U.S. HealthWorks uses social media contest to plug H1N1 vaccinations

Valencia, Calif.-based U.S. HealthWorks Medical Group, a leading nationwide operator of on-the-job-injury health and urgent care centers, has launched a social media contest that allows businesses to offer workers an added employee benefit -- getting vaccinated against H1N1.

"U.S. HealthWorks wants to send our staff to a local business to set up an onsite H1N1 vaccination day and give up to 50 of your employees the H1N1 flu shot...all for free," said Diane Yu, vice president of sales and marketing for U.S. HealthWorks.

"Maybe you're in public safety and employees are exposed to lots of people who could have the virus, but budget cuts prohibit your agency from inoculating workers," Yu said. "Or maybe you have a retail business and see a lot of foot traffic with potential infected carriers, but just haven't had the time to schedule employees to get their shots."

In order to enter, business owners must tell U.S. Healthworks why their workplace should win the Free H1N1 Flu Vaccination Contest, follow the health care provider on Twitter at @USHealthWorks, and re-tweet the contest at least once before the competition ends Feb. 8.

Businesses within 20 miles of a U.S. HealthWorks medical center that has vaccine available are eligible to win the on-site vaccination clinic.

U.S. HealthWorks has two centers in the Santa Clarita Valley: 22840 Soledad Canyon Road in Saugus, and 25327 Avenue Stanford Suite 105 in Valencia.

U.S. HealthWorks also provides tips on preparedness and prevention for individuals and employers. In addition to H1N1 flu shots, also provides workplace healthcare and urgent care services such as sports physicals, testing for ailments like allergies and asthma, and health screenings.
