Influenza Vaccine Update
During late summer/early fall, please check this website, Instagram or Facebook for important updates on this year’s flu shot availability and how to schedule your flu vaccines.
Flu vaccines are recommended for everyone over age six months starting in late summer or fall. If this is the first time your child is getting a flu vaccine and they are under nine years old, they should receive two vaccines separated by at least one month.
When available, we will have both the injected and nasal spray vaccines.
When you schedule an appointment for a flu vaccine, note that the appointment is only for a vaccine - you will not be seen by a doctor or nurse practitioner. If your child has any signs or symptoms of illness, please call the office prior to coming in for a vaccine.
Supply changes frequently. In addition to Facebook and Instagram, please also check our flu information phone message prior to coming in for updates and vaccine availability.
