What’s New at Pediatric Associates…

Flu Season Is Coming

Pediatric Associates is now giving Flu vaccine for the 2018-2019 season. The American Academy of Pediatrics and The CDC recommend that all children ages 6 months to 18 years receive Flu vaccine each year.

We now have Flu vaccine for patients with private insurance as well as VFC (for children on AHCCCS or with no insurance)

We will have preservative free (Thimerasol free) vaccine available for all children 6 months to 3 years. Children over 3 years will receive multi-dose Flu vaccine unless parents specifically request the preservative free vaccine. Not all insurance companies will cover the cost of preservative free vaccine over 3 years. This year all of our Flu vaccine will be quadrivalent and will contain 4 strains of influenza.

The Flumist vaccine (live intranasal Flu vaccine) is not recommended for this season due to its lack of protection against some strains of Flu in past years. We will have a limited number of doses of Flumist for children that are so afraid of shots they would otherwise not get Flu vaccine.

For more information about the Flu vaccine for 2018-2019, go to The CDC information site at www.cdc.gov/flu/

Children 6 months through 9 years will need 2 doses if this is their first year receiving the Flu vaccine. The second dose must be at least 4 weeks after the first dose.

Flu Vaccine Appointments

We are making  flu shot only appointments now.  The appointment hours are 9am to 5pm Monday through Friday.  We will take about 80 patients a day. Appointments should be booked 2-3 days in advance. It is important to arrive at your appointed time to keep wait times to a minimum.

Saturday Flu Vaccine Appointments

We will have at least Saturday Flu shot clinics on September 8th and September 29th. Please call at least 1 week ahead to schedule to get Flu shots on these dates.
