2018 Flu shots

It’s that time of the year again and our flu vaccine supply is here. The CDC advises all persons 6 months of age and older get vaccinated for flu every year. This year the CDC has said that the intranasal vaccine is also acceptable to use, however the American Academy of pediatrics still advises the regular shot as it is more effective, a position we agree with as well. First time flu vaccine recipients under age 8 will need 2 doses around 1 month apart.

As we have in the past we will be giving shots here during visits for both well and “not too sick to get a shot” office visits. We also will be conducting our flu clinics starting on October 2nd. You can call our office to reserve a slot starting today.

You can review our blog posts on both the flu and the flu vaccine or call us with any questions you may have about either topic.

Thank you!
