Seasonal Flu Vaccine Clinic
We currently have flu shots for all children!
If someone in your family has an appointment before the end of the flu season, we will give the flu vaccine then and would like you to bring all of your children who are patients for their flu vaccine at that time.
If no one has an appointment before then, please call extension 4 to schedule a flu clinic appointment. All kids under 9 who are receiving the flu vaccine for the first time, or who received flu vaccine for the first time ever last year and only received one dose, may need a booster dose at least 28 days after the first dose of the flu vaccine.
Flu vaccine status:
- Currently in stock for all ages.
Please call (773) 880-1738 for appointment.
AAP recommendation on live intranasal influenza vaccine - The AAP/ACIP state "Health care providers should not use live attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV) in the upcoming 2017-'18 season due to poor effectiveness", a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) committee said Wednesday. Based on this recommendation, we will not be giving FluMist this year.
