Pediatric Associates is now giving Flu vaccine for the 2020-2021 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 have Flu vaccine for patients with private insurance. We also now have Flu vaccine from 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.
We do not have Flumist vaccine (live intranasal Flu vaccine) for this season.
For more information about the Flu vaccine for 2020-2021, 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 now holding flu shot clinics every day during the week. Weekday flu shots will be given in our waiting room, so only children 3 and over that can sit still for a shot can be scheduled at these times. Other children should schedule a nurse visit during the week, or schedule an appointment for one of our Saturday clinics. Only one parent can accompany your children, but more than one child can be immunized.
We will hold Saturday flu shot clinics on October 10th and October 24th.
All flu shot clinics are by appointment only. Please call 602-861-1611 to schedule.
We will also be giving flu shots at well checks during the week, but this year we cannot give them to siblings during patient well checks.
Stay safe and we will see you soon!
