Flu season is approaching and we at Elizabeth Pediatrics strongly encourage all of our patients to get a flu vaccine. All of our staff will be receiving their vaccine in the coming days. Current guidelines are that all children 6 months and older should receive the vaccine.
We have all forms of flu vaccine available. Children 2 yrs and older may receive the nasal flumist if desired. Those with asthma or recent wheezing must receive the injection.
If your child is less than 9 yrs old and will be receiving the flu vaccine for the first time ever, a second booster dose is needed one month after the first dose.
Please call our office and schedule your child’s flu vaccine at your earliest convenience.
