10/25/18 Flu Clinic Update for PWG patients

We have run out of the flu vaccine shot for kids > 3 years, we anticipate getting another shipment during the week of 10/29/18 and will let you know when that arrives.

We have also ordered more flu vaccine shots for kids > 3 years but do not have an estimated time for delivery.

We still have good availability of flu shots for children 6 months to 36months, and FluMist for kids > 2 years.

We will still be having drop-in flu clinics but will only be offering flu shots for kids 6 months to 36 months and FluMist for kids > 2 years. FluMist cannot be given to every child, here is what you should know about FluMist:
