The 2009 seasonal influenza vaccine will be available in our office starting October 1, 2009. In the month of October we will be vaccinating only high risk children which includes asthmatics, diabetics, children with heart problems, or other chronic conditions and infants 6 to 24 months. Starting in November we will vaccinate all children for seasonal influenza by appointment. Please call the office now to schedule a flu vaccine.

We will be receiving 100 doses of H1N1 on Tuesday, October 27, 2009. We will distribute them on a first-come first-serve basis by appointment only. Please call and schedule this promptly. Remember that there must be 28 days between all vaccines given. If you have had a check-up within the past month with vaccines or you are scheduled for a check-up in the next 30 days, please do still call and reserve the vaccine for that next well care visit if it is scheduled within the next 14 days.
