Flu Season 2020-2021

  • If you have a well visit scheduled for your child after September 1st and before Oct 15th, we will administer your flu vaccine at that time, as long as we have our vaccine inventory available.

  • If you would like to add on a child to a sibling's existing appointment to receive the flu shot, please call us and have us add them to the schedule.

FLU CLINIC DATES

We have completed our flu clinics for the 2020-2021 season. After holding 7 clinics over the course of 8 weeks we hope to have vaccinated a large majority of our patients.

If you have not received a flu shot, please call our main number (610) 896-8009 and speak to a receptionist.

Our allotment of flu vaccines was ordered this past March and we cannot guarantee that we are unable to get more. We will give them out as long as we have the shipments that have been requested from our vaccine supplier.

Age 0-5 months

If your baby is a newborn up to 5 months of age, they cannot receive the flu vaccine. It is especially important for the people around them (parents, siblings, caregivers) to be vaccinated from the flu. 

If they turn 6 months old before April 2020, they can receive the flu shot in our office. They will need a second dose of the flu vaccine one month later since it is their first time receiving it. 

 

Age 3 years and above

Your child will receive a dose of the flu vaccine that is appropriate for their age. Our vaccines are preservative free and we carry the quadrivalent (4 strain) flu shot.

If this is the first time your child has received the flu shot and is less than 9 years old, they will need a second dose of the flu vaccine one month later. 

Age 6 months-35 months

Your child will receive a dose of the flu vaccine that is appropriate for their age. Our vaccines are preservative free and we carry the quadrivalent (4 strain) flu shot.

If this is the first time your child has received the flu vaccine, they will need a second one 1 month later. 

Our office has elected to not stock the flu mist (nasal) vaccine due to past concerns of efficacy.
