We now have flu shots available for our patients, including the flu vaccine for children under 3 years of age. We are offering an outpatient flu vaccine clinic for patients 19 months of age and older and no acute illness at the time of the visit. As per AAP recommendations, the flu mist is not being offered. Please contact our office for an appointment in our outpatient flu clinic.
Patients who are eligible for outpatient flu vaccines are:
- patients over 18 months of age
- patients who have already received a flu vaccine in a previous year
- patients who do NOT have life threatening allergic reactions to eggs
- patients who do NOT wish to see the doctor for any other reason during their visit
At this appointment your child will be given the flu vaccine by a member of our medical assistant staff, as ordered by their physician.
Your child’s primary care physician will have reviewed his or her records to be sure they qualify for the flu vaccine.
The “Flu vaccine only” visit does not require a copay. However, if any other problems are addressed at this visit, this visit will require a copay as required by your insurance policy.
