FLU VACCINE Update – September 2014
The pediatricians at East Greenwich Pediatrics strongly recommend that ALL children over the age of six months receive the flu vaccine each year. Children 6 months to 2 years, and/or children with asthma who are currently taking a 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 must receive the vaccine during regular office hours.
We will be offering FLUMIST ONLY on Saturday afternoon September 27 and October 18 from 1-4pm. Children receiving FLUMIST may walk in during those times. If your child needs a FLU SHOT please call the office to make an appointment.
If your child has a scheduled WELL visit prior to November 1, we will give the flu vaccine at the well visit and you do not need to schedule an extra appointment.
