Flu Vaccine Appointments Available

9.1.2017

We now have appointments available for flu vaccine administration.

As you know, the flu can be uncomfortable – but also deadly. Influenza illness is no fun for anyone, but it can be especially dangerous for certain groups, such as infants and young children, people with asthma, diabetes or heart problems and certain other chronic health problems. The American Academy of Pediatrics advises that all children and adolescents be immunized against the flu.

Although the FluMist (nasal flu spray) has been recommended in past years, this year the FluMist is not recommended and will not be available for use.  This is because scientific studies have shown the FluMist to be much less effective then the injectable (the "shot") version.

For more information please refer to the CDC website at www.cdc.gov/flu.

 

  • Need more information? Feel free to discuss your questions with one of our providers or with our nurses.
  • Need an appointment? Just contact the office and we will be happy to make appointments for your children.

Be wise and immunize!
