Protect your child from flu with flu vaccines at Pediatric Associates

Now that flu season is here, it is important to remember that the flu vaccine is the best way to prevent influenza and flu-related deaths.  The pediatricians at Pediatric Associates agree with the current national recommendations that all children 6 months and older be immunized against flu with a flu shot.  Additionally, healthy children over the age of 2 years, without underlying medical conditions, can receive a safe, reliable, pain-free intranasal version of the flu vaccine.  This reduces immunizing to a simple sniff up the nose, instead of a shot.  No more tears!

We have ample supply of flu vaccine at Pediatric Associates.  For your convenience, we schedule appointments for flu vaccines on weekdays and weekends alike.  Call our office to protect your child from the flu.
