                                               Flu Season 2018-2019
 
It is that time of year again - Flu Vaccine season! It is our strong recommendation that everyone age 6 months and above receive flu vaccine. 
 
Flu Shots: We will again be using the quadrivalent (protects against 4 strains of Flu as opposed to 3), thimerosol-free injectable Flu Shots this year. Children age 6 months through 8 years who have previously received zero or one Flu vaccine in their life should be given two Flu Shots this year, at least 4 weeks apart. All other children and all adults should receive one Flu Shot each. The Flu Shots have arrived, and we will begin administering doses immediately. See below for September dates to receive Flu Shots. 
 
Flu Mist: The nasal spray version of flu vaccine is back this year, but we do not recommend its use except in those who are truly needle phobic. Flu Mist has not been as effective as the Flu Shots the last several years. We have ordered Flu Mist for use in our needle phobic patients, as the Mist is better than going without any protection. We have not received Flu Mist yet, and do not expect it to arrive until October. Flu mist can be given to children age 2 and up.
 
CMG will offer as many opportunities as we can for kids and parents to come in and get their Flu vaccines, including weekdays  and many Saturdays. Here are our first set of dates for Flu clinics, for the month of September:
