Important Updates Regarding Flu Vaccine

Flu vaccine information:

Coleman Pediatrics now has flu shots available for the 2021-2022 season. You may call the
office at (301)468-9225 to schedule an appointment. Please note that “Flu Clinic” appointments
are available for patients that ONLY need a flu vaccine. We will not be able to address any other
concerns during Flu Clinics. If you have other concerns to address, or have previously
experienced – fainting, extreme anxiety, or any other adverse reaction to vaccines, please notify
our staff so that you are scheduled during the regular office schedule.

Flu vaccines are strongly recommended for everyone over six months of age. Children under
eight years old that have not received the flu vaccine previously will require two doses given one
month apart. We will NOT be offering Flu Mist this season.

Flu Clinics will be held in a separate suite located in the basement level at the rear entrance of
our building (first door on the right). For the safety of our patients and staff we ask that you
notify us prior to your appointment if anyone is not feeling well, has had symptoms of illness
within the last ten days, or if any member of the household has had symptoms of illness within
the last ten days, so that we can reschedule the appointment. Face coverings are required for
anyone entering the building over two years of age. We appreciate your cooperation as we work
hard to make sure that all our patients can receive this year’s flu vaccine in the most safe and
efficient manner possible.
