Has your child received their annual flu vaccination yet? 

When should my child get the flu vaccine?

After six months of age, your child can get vaccinated any time during the flu season. However, it is recommended they receive the vaccination before the end of October. 

It can take up to two weeks for the body to develop immunity, so the sooner your child is vaccinated, the better.**

Keep your child safe
this flu season -

Although getting the flu vaccination is much safer than getting the flu, there still are some possible side effects. Also, please remember the flu vaccination does not cause the flu.

Side effects are usually mild, go away in a few days and may include:

  • Pain, swelling, or redness where the shot was given

  • Headache

  • Muscle aches

  • Fever

  • Upset stomach

Are there any vaccination side effects?

Does my child have
to be a patient to receive a flu shot?

If your child has been here before, you can schedule an appointment for only the flu shot.

If your child has never been seen here before, please call to make an appointment for a well child check and we will administer the flu shot at that time.
