Coleman Pediatrics is currently administering flu vaccines to our patients for the 2020-2021 season. Annual flu vaccines are recommended as part of routine preventive care for everyone over six months of age. Children less than eight years old that have not received the flu vaccine previously will require two doses given one month apart. The American Academy of Pediatrics urges that ideally this should be completed by the end of October. We are encouraging our patients to make an appointment to receive their annual flu vaccine as soon as possible, if you have not already.
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. 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). You will receive a screening questionnaire prior to your appointment that will be required to be completed before the appointment date.
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 of our patients are able to receive this year’s flu vaccine in the most safe and efficient manner possible.
