Flu Season Is Coming
Pediatric Associates is now giving Flu vaccine for the 2021-2022 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 as well as VFC (patients with AHCCCS as well as 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 2021-2022, 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.
