Have you gotten your Flu shot?
Flu shots are now available in our office for the 2017 - 2018 flu Season.
The CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) voted that live attenuated influenza vaccine, also known as the "nasal spray" flu vaccine, again, should not be used during the 2017-2018 flu season. The ACIP continues to recommend annual flu vaccination with the injectible vaccine for everyone 6 months and older.
Young adults until the age of 24 may remain in our practice
Busy with college, work and just life in general, we found that young adults often fail to get the recommended annual check ups to maintain their good health. For this reason, our physicians have extended the age limit on our patients until their 24th birthday.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that in cases like these, you should never hesitate to call your pediatrician's office first, even if you know the office is closed. Pediatricians are very accustomed to taking phone calls at all times - day and night- and can often deal with problems over the phone. You are not bothering your pediatrician by calling.
