2016-2017 FLU IMMUNIZATION UPDATE
The pediatricians at East Greenwich Pediatrics recommend that all children older than 6 month receive a yearly flu vaccine. This year, the CDC has recommended that everyone receive a FLU SHOT (not a flu mist). If your child has a well visit before 11/1/16, we will give the flu vaccine at that visit. For everyone else:
For patients of EAST GREENWICH PEDIATRICS WHO ARE 3 OR OLDER we will be offering walk-in FLU SHOT clinics (no appointment necessary) on Saturday October 22 and Saturday November 19th from 1-5 PM. Please have your child wear a short-sleeved shirt to decrease your wait time.
Please call us to make an appointment for a flu shot if your child is 6 months to 3 years of age or has a severe egg allergy.
Health Information Portal
Our online health information portal (https://90.portal.athenahealth.com) allows parents to securely access basic heath information about his/her child. Due to confidentiality reasons, portal access for parents with children older than 13 years of age is limited.
NON-URGENT messages can be sent via the portal to your child’s doctor. If your child is sick or you need a refill or referral it is always best to CALL the office 401-884-8900 so that our staff can make sure that your needs are met in a timely matter.
If you would like to set up a portal account, please contact our office staff to fill out a “Patient Portal Proxy Access Request and Authorization Form” and we can help you get set up. Thank you for your patience while we roll out this exciting new feature for our patients and their families.
