Flu Vaccines Delayed

During the summer it was determined that one of the Influenza A strains (H3N2) would be added to the vaccine supply. This has led to a national delay in some shipments to many clinics and retail locations.

We have been impacted by this delay,  and we expect our vaccine supplies to arrive in late September. We anticipate our flu clinics will begin around that time. However, we will provide you with updates on our clinic dates as they become available.

As always, we encourage vaccination against the flu early in flu season. We particularly encourage this in high risk patient populations, including children with asthma. If you choose to vaccinate elsewhere, we would support going somewhere that provides preservative-free quadrivalent vaccines. If you do so, please call the office so we can add this to your child’s immunization record.
