Ready for flu season? We recommend children older than 6 months receive an influenza vaccination this fall. Get a vaccination during a well visit or during the following clinics. Login to MyChart or call us to make an appointment.
Tuesdays, 9 a.m.-6 p.m.: starting Oct. 11
Saturdays, 9-11 a.m.: starting Oct. 29
Also, please be aware:
-- FluMist is not available: the CDC does not recommend nasal mist during the 2016-2017 flu season due to low effectiveness in preventing the flu for children. Learn more in this blog post.
-- First-Time Vaccination: children 6 months to 9 years of age need to get two doses of flu vaccine four or more weeks apart during their first season of vaccination. Children who only get one dose but need two doses can have reduced or no protection from a single dose of flu vaccine.
-- Egg Allergies: most children with a history of mild egg allergy (i.e., hives) can safely receive the influenza vaccine without needing an allergy consultation, but parents should consult an allergist before administering flu vaccine to children with a history of severe egg allergy (i.e., cardiovascular changes, respiratory or gastrointestinal tract symptoms or the required use of epinephrine).
-- High-Risk Groups: children younger than 6 months are at high risk of serious flu illness, but are too young to be vaccinated. So the CDC recommends that people who care for them should be vaccinated instead. Additionally, children with chronic health problems like asthma and diabetes are at especially high risk of developing serious flu complications.
