Flu Vaccine 2021-2022
The pediatricians at East Greenwich Pediatrics recommend a yearly flu shot for all patients age 6 months and older.
If your child has a well visit before November 1, 2021, they can receive a flu vaccine at that visit. To reduce exposure in the office, we are still asking that only one parent and no siblings come to check up appointments. If siblings need flu vaccine please bring them to the walk-in clinics.
If your child is 6 months to age 1 or needs special assistance please call the office to schedule a flu vaccine appointment.
If your child is > age 1 and a patient at East Greenwich Pediatrics they should come to our WALK-IN (no appointment needed), OUTDOOR clinics in the AFTERNOON from 1-4PM:
- Saturday, September 25
- Monday, October 11
- Saturday, October 23
The walk-in flu clinics will be held in the tent behind our office. No appointment or sign up necessary. Everyone should wear masks. Wear a short sleeve shirt to make it easier. We will have cones set up to make a socially distanced line. Please do not come to the clinic if you are feeling ill or instructed to be under quarantine.
Pro tip: The clinic is usually busiest right at the beginning and the end of the session. Think about coming in the middle!
If you can’t make our clinics there are also school clinics set up by the RI Department of Health all over the state. Visit the school flu clinic site: schoolflu.com
