Influenza season is fast approaching. We have received shipments of both injectable and nasal influenza vaccines for this winter. 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. To read more about the influenza vaccines for this year, visit the CDC website.
We will be offering several weekday and Saturday morning vaccine clinics in the Medical City Dallas office.
For Frisco, we will be offering drive through options on some Saturday morning clinics as well as our standard in office clinics on weekdays. We are offering later appointments from 4-6pm on select Mondays.
The Mesquite office will also be offering some curbside and in-office options (weekdays only).
You can schedule an appointment for our flu clinics through the Patient Portal, or by contacting our offices during regular office hours.
All three offices are able to assess children for illnesses, including COVID-19. We offer in-house antigen testing as well as send out PCR (molecular test) for COVID-19. In order to keep all parties safe, we need you to call our office in order to schedule these appointments.
Virtual visits in the evening:
We are currently testing on demand visits options for 6pm-8pm on weeknights, Monday through Thursday. These will be virtual visits only and the assigned on-call Forest Lane physician will be available to help your situation. Please go to our website for more details.
Thanks you for entrusting our children’s health with us,
Forest Lane Pediatrics
