Update on Seasonal Flu - Flu Clinics Start

as of 9/10/2019
 
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommend annual influenza ("flu") immunization for all children, both healthy and those with high-risk conditions (asthma, diabetes, etc.) ages 6 months through 18 years. Children often have the highest attack rates of influenza in a community during seasonal influenza epidemics and play a major role in transmitting influenza virus to household and other close contacts and can experience severe or fatal complications from influenza infection. The vaccine prevents or decreases the disease in those 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 injectable vaccine (Fluzone "shot") and a limited number of intranasal vaccine (FluMist). Flu vaccines are available during well-child exams or at our flu shot clinics, which will begin promptly when our stock arrives. Our current schedule of clinics include:
 
Tuesday mornings: 8am–9am
Wednesday mornings: 8am-9am
Wednesday afternoons: 5pm-8pm
Thursday afternoons: 5pm-8pm
Friday mornings: 8am-9am
Saturday (limited dates) afternoons: 12pm-2pm
 
We require appointments, and are available by calling our office at (540) 347-9900.
 
Contraindications to any flu vaccine include:
- severe egg allergy
- severe reaction after a previous dose of influenza vaccine
- history of Guillain-Barre Disease
- currently experiencing a moderate to severe illness
 
Please inform your physician or nurse if you have any of these medical histories.
