Agroamerica carries out a campaign against Influenza for its personnel

Guatemala, May, 2012. Agroamerica carried out a day of free vaccines against Influenza for 200 banana farm workers. The activity was organized by the Human Resources Department and the Health Center Caballo Blanco.

The beneficiaries of this campaign were the nurses at the Health Center and local clinics, managers, administrators, block chiefs, foremen, administrative and field staff from Agroamerica’s farms.

Christian Sandoval, comptroller of the company, said: “The activity was very positive, as it would help counter diseases that occur in the rainy season. These campaigns are an added benefit for our employees”.

Doctors recommend that one should be vaccinated once a year to be protected from 90 percent of the viruses that circulate during flu season. This helps to avoid getting the flu, pneumonia and other respiratory illnesses.
