Thank you to the thousands of patients and families who received a flu shot at our Drive-Thru Flu Shot Clinics this fall! Our drive-thru events for flu have now ended. The flu vaccine for patients 6 months and older is available at scheduled Well Child Check-ups and follow-up visits in clinic.
The flu vaccine is only available to patients 6 months and older. Depending on their age, some children may need 2 doses of the flu vaccine for best protection.
Children 9 years and older: 1 dose
Children 6 months through 8 years: Some may need 2 doses for best protection
Do you have questions about the flu vaccine? Vicki Barag, nurse and Director of Clinic Services at Allegro Pediatrics, reviews the importance of the flu vaccine and answers common questions about the flu on our blog.
