2010/2011 flu vaccine for commercial insurance has arrived.

The 2010/2011 flu vaccine for commercial insurance plans has arrived.  We are still waiting for our state (All Kids) flu shipment to come in.

All children 6 months and over should receive the flu vaccine.  Here at Pediatric Health Associates we use only preservative free vaccine.  We have both the nasal flu mist for ages 2 and over as well as the injectable form for all children 6 months and over.

We also encourage all parents to get a flu shot.   Adults may receive their vaccine at their primary care physician's office or at area retailers such as Walgreens, Osco and CVS.   These facilities have flu vaccine with preservative for ages 14 years and older.

Please call our office to see if we are able to book your appointment as we have limited amounts of the vaccine at this time.  This year's flu vaccine covers both  H1N1 and the 2 strains of seasonal flu.
