Flu vaccine for children ages 6 months and older are now available. This year’s vaccine has been updated to cover the new Influenza A strain that appeared last year. It is recommended that all adults and all children six months and older receive the vaccine every year. As always, we will be giving quadrivalent (four strains) preservative-free vaccines. In addition, we will be offering the Flumist nasal vaccine to children over two years old. To read more about the influenza vaccines for this year, visit the CDC website.
We will be offering several Saturday morning vaccine clinics in both offices this winter. Our first clinic will be at our Medical City Dallas office on 9/15/18 and in Texas Health Plano office on 9/22/18. We will also be able to schedule weekday vaccine appointments on select days at both offices. You can schedule an appointment for a Saturday vaccine clinic through the Patient Portal, or by contacting either office during regular office hours.
