VFC Influenza Vaccine

We have VFC influenza vaccine available. Please call for a “shot only” appointment to schedule your child’s flu shot if your child is on Nevada Medicaid.

If your child is between 6 months of age and 8 years of age and has never had flu vaccine in the past, we recommend 2 flu shots 4 weeks apart.

Influenza Vaccine 2018

We expect to receive our 2018 influenzae vaccine Tuesday, September 11. We will have vaccine for all children 6 months of age and older. We have the shot version of the vaccine only. Although the Flu Mist has been released this year, the American of Academy is NOT recommending its use in children.

We have not received the VFC influenzae vaccine from the State of Nevada as of yet, therefore, we do not have influenzae vaccine for Medicaid patients. We do not have an estimate as to when it will arrive. We will keep you posted.

As a reminder, if your child is between 6 months of age to 8 years of age and has never had flu vaccine in the past, we recommend 2 flu shots 4 weeks apart.
