Flu Vaccines

Please call our office to get your child on our nurse schedule if you wish for your child to receive a flu vaccine.
 
We understand that our schedule is filling up quickly, and that the “after-school” times fill up first.  This is why we have had 3 flu clinics this year on Saturdays to help accommodate our patients.  Please be understanding when you call that you might not get the exact date and time that you want.

Limited amount of FluMist available

Many children and parents remember FluMist, a flu vaccine given as a nasal spray, which was given for several years. Like most flu vaccines, FluMist provides protection against 4 strains of influenza virus likely to circulate during the flu season. In 2015, the Centers for Disease Control recommended against vaccination with FluMist because 1 of the 4 strains did not offer adequate protection. However, the CDC has revised its guidance following an adjustment of the less-effective strain, and now advises that the FluMist may be given.  The traditional flu shot is still preferred and is more effective.  FluMist should be given as a last resort, for children who would not otherwise get vaccinated, and is only appropriate for children 2 and older. Our clinic has received a small number of doses and will give them out to patients without problems such as ongoing wheezing, and while supplies last.

 

Appointment Policies: 

Please aim to arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled appointment time. Arriving more than 10 minutes late for your scheduled appointment may result in you having to reschedule. 

Please bring a list of all current medication to each appointment. 

Please bring your insurance card and be prepared to pay your co-pay or estimated deductible amount due at the time of service.
