Vaccines are some of the most powerful tools available to protect yourself and your family members from potentially dangerous illnesses.
Annual flu shots are recommended for all patients six months and up. These are regularly available in our office, so you will be able to get one during your regular appointment, or you can schedule a separate visit if you will not be seeing us for a well-patient appointment before or during flu season.
For pediatric patients, our office follows the vaccine guidelines set forth by the American Academy of Pediatrics, which you can see below. This schedule has been extensively studied to be as effective as possible. Any side effects are typically rare and short-lived. If you have any questions about vaccines your child will receive, do not hesitate to ask.
