As with previous years, our physicians strongly recommend the flu vaccine for all children. You may arrange for your child to receive this important prevention by calling our office and scheduling a visit to our flu vaccine clinic or by asking our nurse about receiving it during an office visit this fall.
This year the CDC is recommending that everyone receive the flu shot rather than the flu mist because of some concerns about the flu mist effectiveness last season. Our pediatricians agree with this recommendation so we will not be offering the flu mist this year. Please do not let this deter you from getting the flu shot for your child.
