We have are now offering flu vaccines at well visits, as well as other scheduled visits if a child is not too ill, in addition to nurse visits. Again this year, the CDC did NOT approve the use of the nasal spray because it did not appear to be effective. Children must be at least six months old to receive the first vaccine, and a booster shot is needed the first year a child receives a flu vaccine.
We HIGHLY recommend the flu vaccine as the best way to prevent contracting the flu.
