The pediatricians at East Greenwich Pediatrics strongly recommend that ALL children over the age of six months receive the flu vaccine. Children 6 months to 2 years, and/or children with asthma that are currently taking an inhaled steroid every day or who have other chronic illnesses should receive a flu shot. Children 2 years and older who do not have a chronic illness should receive Flumist, an inhaled intranasal vaccine. If your child is allergic to eggs, he/she may NOT receive flu vaccine without consulting his/her physician and must receive the vaccine during regular office hours.
If your child has not yet had a flu vaccine, please call the office to arrange a time.
If your child has a WELL visit scheduled prior to December 1, we will give the flu vaccine at the well visit and you do not need to schedule an extra appointment.

With great sorrow, we inform you of the death of Laurie Muddiman, our nurse practitioner, following a courageous ten-month battle with cancer. All of us at East Greenwich Pediatrics grieve the loss of our dedicated, highly skilled and compassionate colleague. Laurie loved her work and we know you also will greatly miss the caring devotion she gave to your children’s health care needs.
