Seasonal Flu Clinics

as of 9/4/2017
 

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommend annual influenza immunization for all children, both healthy and with high-risk conditions (asthma, diabetes, etc.), ages 6 months through 18 years.

We are scheduling our Flu Clinics today!

Influenza is a serious public hazard killing more people every year than SARS, West Nile virus, and anthrax combined. The vaccine prevents disease in approximately 70-95% of the people who receive it. Piedmont Pediatrics encourages all children ages 6 months through 18 years to receive the flu vaccine as we anticipate a very active flu season. We also offer the flu vaccine to our parents on a self-pay basis.

This year we offer the traditional injection (shot) vaccine Fluzone. We offer flu vaccines during well-child exams or at our flu shot clinics. Flu shot clinics begin September 19th and continue Tuesdays, Wednesday and Thursday mornings from 8am-9am and Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 5pm-8pm throughout the months of September and October.

Appointments are required. Please call our office at (540) 347-9900.

Contraindications to flu vaccination include:
  • severe egg allergy
  • severe reaction after a previous dose of influenza vaccine
  • history of Guillain-Barre Disease
  • a current moderate to severe illness
