Flu Vaccine News

We have received our seasonal influenza vaccine in both offices. We began giving the flu shot to anyone who is in the office for a regular appointment on September 11th.  We are working on details for our outdoor, drive-up flu shot clinics to begin in October. As soon as all the plans are in place, we will send out the link by email to self-schedule a flu shot appointment for your child.

Influenza is a viral illness that occurs most commonly in the winter months. Prevention of the flu uses the same measures that are used to prevent COVID-19 infection: vaccination, regular hand-washing, staying home when sick, and social distancing.

A yearly seasonal flu vaccine is recommended for all children starting at the age of six months. Children under the age of 9 years who are getting the flu vaccine for the first time should receive two doses a month apart.
