It’s Almost Time For Flu Shots Again!

Category: Events, News

Please reach out now to schedule your annual Flu Shot! Drive through clinics return on select Sunday mornings in the fall, Columbus Day clinic October 10, 2022 and in office clinics every Tuesday and Thursday 3-5pm starting mid September.

Every child 6 months and older should be vaccinated annually with Influenza vaccine. Flu shots can be given along with other routine childhood vaccines and will be offered all fall as part of routine office visits.
Please note Drive through clinics are best for older children who do not need to be held or hugged during shot time. Also no long sleeves or long pants when you pull up to keep your “visit” moving along!

Reminder to Schedule Your Child’s School Physicals and Vaccines

If your child is entering Kindergarten, 7th grade, or 12th grade, and is behind on their wellness visits, please call our office as soon as possible to schedule.

Vaccines are required for entry into school for these grades and not being up-to-date on vaccines can lead to your child not being not allowed to start school on time.
