We have influenza vaccine available for all age groups. At this time, we still do not have VFC influenza vaccine for patients who are on Medicaid. We are expecting to receive VFC influenza vaccine soon.
As you may have seen in the news, Flu Mist will not be available for this flu season in the United States. Everyone will be receiving flu shot this year. Sorry Kids!!!
As a reminder, influenza vaccine is recommended for everyone 6 months of age and older. Children 8 years of age or younger who have never received influenza vaccine in the past should receive 2 doses of influenza vaccine 4 weeks apart.
We presently have all types of Influenza Vaccines for the VFC program including
flu shot for children 6 to 36 months
flu shot for children 2 to 18 years
flu mist for children 2 to 18 years who do not have a contraindication to live viral vaccine
To be eligible for the VFC Program, your child must be on Medicaid or be uninsured.
Please call the office to schedule an appointment or speak with one of our staff to see if your child is eligible for the VFC Program.
As of Tuesday, September 29, we are temporarily out of Flu Mist influenza vaccine.
We still have not received Flu Shot influenza vaccine.
We anticipate receiving both within a week. We will keep you posted.
