New NYS Requirements for Meningococcal Vaccination

Beginning in September 2016, all public, private and parochial students entering 7th  and 12th grade in New York State must be vaccinated against Meningococcal Disease.  This bacterial infection is uncommon (largely due to vaccination) but can result in severe illness, meningitis and death.. The complete adolescent meningococcal vaccine series includes a first dose at 11 or 12 years of age and a booster dose on or after the 16th birthday.

At Pediatric Associates, we have been vaccinating our patients against Meningococcal disease according to the recommended schedule for many years.  When your adolescent comes in for their well child visit this year, we will make sure that he or she is up to date on this vaccine and will provide documentation for your school on their physical form.

For more information go to the  CDC website: http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vpd-vac/mening/default.htm

AUVI-Q recall

As you may have heard, AuVi-Q epinephrine  have been recalled by the manufacturer for inconsistent and sometimes inadequate injection doses of the medication.  If your child has been prescribed this medication for severe allergic reactions, please call our office during Monday through Friday office hours, so we can change your prescription to Epipen.

Thank you for helping us best take care of your child.

The Camillus Office is in it’s new home!!!

The move into our new Camillus office is now complete! The computers are humming, the phones are working and we are anxiously awaiting to care for your children in our new facility. We are located at the West end of Township 5 (Costco Plaza).  The new address is 270 Township Boulevard, Camillus, NY 13031.  The phone number is the same:  315-487-1541.

We are stocked with Flu Vaccine!

Our office has finally received all of the formulations of the Influenza vaccine-infant, older children and Flumist (nasal).  This year, there has been a manufacturing problem with the Flumist, so our supply is less than in previous years.  Unfortunately, we can not reserve a dose of the Flumist for your child.

We are scheduling appointments during the week and Flu clinics in each office on selected weekend days.  Vaccinate your child now to best protect them and your whole family against the Flu.

Our new building is going up!!!!

We are so excited that our new Camillus office building in the Costco Plaza  has been framed! We  hope to be in our new home in the late fall.

It’s Time to Schedule Your Child’s Physical Exam!!!

June is a great time for your child’s check up.  School is winding down and the summer rush for appointments has not begun.

Beginning July 1, 2015 our offices will be open at 8:30am (instead of 9:00am) to allow extra time slots  for summer well visits.  Call now for your child’s annual physical!

You will receive a physical form which will be good for school, camp and daycare requirements.

If your teenager will be leaving for college in the fall, download the physical form from the college website and bring it to the checkup.  Most colleges require some documentation from your child’s physician by August.

Lice Concerns????

Recently our office has been receiving more calls about lice.  If you are looking for tips on treatment or  prevention of lice, click on the “Parent Resources” tab, then scroll through the “Parent Education” list.
