We now have flu vaccine for all kids over the age of 6 months. If any of our patients in your family has an appointment between now and November 1, we encourage you to bring all of our patients in the family at that time. We will be vaccinating as many people as possible while they are already in our office. If no one is due for an appointment before November 1, we will schedule a flu clinic appointment for you. The times that these are scheduled varies, and an appointment for a flu clinic is required.
For kids under 9 years old, a booster dose may be required (if the child has not received 2 doses before this season). For kids with egg allergy, the shot may need to be given at the allergist. Again this year, we will only be giving flu shots, not the intranasal flu vaccine.
