Flu Vaccine Information 2018 - 2019 season

Schedule your FLU vaccine

  • Oct. 15th Mon 8am-noon (no school day)
  • Any day during regular office hours (need to call for appt)

We now have flu vaccine!  Keep in mind ~  It comes in allotments, so please understand that in-between these shipments, we may run out and need to reschedule your appt until the next shipment comes in. 

Please see the recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics below, regarding flu mist:

  • Annual influenza vaccination is recommended for everyone 6 months and older.
  • For the 2018-’19 season, the AAP recommends inactivated influenza vaccine (the “shot”) as the primary choice for all children because the effectiveness of LAIV (the “mist”):
  1. was inferior against A/H1N1 during past seasons; and
  2. is unknown against A/H1N1 for this upcoming season

* Flu mist if available may be offered for children who would not otherwise receive an influenza vaccine (and for whom it is appropriate by age and health status).
