Per the recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP):
-In general, health-care providers should begin offering vaccination soon after vaccine becomes available, and if possible, by October.
-All children ages 6months- 8years who are recommended for 2 doses should receive their first dose as soon as possible after vaccine becomes available; these children should receive the second dose after 4 weeks.

For further recommendations please visit http://www.cdc.gov/flu/professionals/acip/2013-summary-recommendations.htm

Please watch for additional flu clinics to open as vaccine arrives in our office!!
