Flu Vaccine Now Available for 2017

Did you know? Every year an estimated 20,000 children younger than 5 years old are hospitalized for flu complications. Like pneumonia. Everyone in your family who is 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine. This year, Next year, Every year. #fightflu

The injectable flu vaccine is available and we just opened our first “flu clinics” for our patients. If these dates do not work for you, keep an eye on our website or Facebook page for more clinic dates.

If your child comes in for a physical exam or sick visit (and is fever free) he/she can receive the flu vaccine during that visit–no need to schedule a second appointment. Or you may schedule an appointment at the office during one of the following flu clinic times:
