2017 Flu Vaccines

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.

So far this year is like last year and the CDC is recommending that everyone receive the flu shot rather than the flu mist because of some concerns about the flu mist effectiveness in recent years.  There may be updates to this recommendation throughout the season and we will be watching them for you.  Our advice for now is to go ahead and protect your child with the flu shot this fall.
