Flu Vaccine Update

Update on Flu Vaccine

Regarding flu vaccine delays: We are sorry about any inconveniences the national flu vaccine delays may have caused your family. Last year’s flu vaccine distribution was particularly quick and efficient. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) have both issued statements saying that most manufacturers anticipate the majority of their flu vaccine distribution will occur by the end of October, which is consistent with most of the previous seasons. So, stay-tuned and thank you for your patience!

Currently in stock we have flu mist for patient’s ages 2 and up who are generally healthy and preservative free flu shot for patient’s ages 3 and up. Due to manufacturing issues, our supplier has not provided us with baby flu shot for children ages 6- 35months. The AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics) and the CDC (Center for Disease Control) both recommend flu mist for children ages 2-8 years of age as they feel healthy children in this age group get better immunity from the live virus. It is also recommended that you get your flu vaccine early because it takes 2 weeks for it to be effective. We offer walk ins for flu vaccines Monday through Friday from 8:30am- 12pm and 1:30pm- 5pm in both office locations (first come, first serve). Please log in to your child’s patient portal account or call our office to schedule an appointment during one of the following flu clinics, you may also walk in and receive your flu vaccine during any of these clinic times
