Winter storm

With predictions of potentially heavy snow accumulation this weekend, our office hours beginning on Monday may be affected. Please check here on our website for updates. If you have a scheduled appointment early next week, call the office beforehand that day to be sure that we will be open.

We will try to reschedule missed appointments as quickly as possible after the inclement weather resolves.

Flu vaccine clinic

An afternoon flu vaccine clinic is being held on Thursday, December 1 from 1:30 PM until 4:15 PM. Flu vaccines will be given to patients on a walk-in basis during that time. Please RSVP to the office if you are planning to bring your children to the clinic, to help us in our preparations.

Flu season

If your children have not been given a flu vaccine yet for the 2016-2017 influenza season, please call us to schedule an appointment for them. Scattered flu cases are being seen in the area now and will increase in number as we move further into the fall and winter. Vaccinating children against influenza provides them protection from a potentially dangerous illness. It is also a key element in the strategy to decrease the spread of influenza through communities.

Influenza vaccination is recommended for everyone six months of age and older. It takes about two weeks to develop a good level of protection, so it is important to get the vaccine early in the season.

The vaccine may be given at nurse visits and at regular well child appointments. It can often be given as well if a child is being seen for other reasons. We will also be scheduling flu vaccine clinics soon, giving children the vaccine on a walk-in basis. Dates for those clinics will be posted on the website.
