 Flu Shots Have Arrived

We have received shipments of the 2007 influenza vaccine. If you wish to receive the vaccine, please contact the office.  The American Academy of Pediatrics has established guidelines for the administration of the vaccine.  The guidelines are listed below:

 

Target Groups for Childhood Vaccination for the 2007-2008 season are as follows:

Persons at increased risk of complications

  • Children aged 6-59 months

  • Residents of long-term care facilities

  • Children and adolescents receiving long-term aspirin therapy

  • Women who will be pregnant during the influenza season (including adolescents)

  • Children with chronic pulmonary or cardiovascular disorders (excluding non-cyanotic cardiac disease that does not require medication)

  • Children who have required regular medical follow-up or hospitalization during the past year for chronic metabolic diseases, renal dysfunction, hemoglobinopathies, or immunosuppression

  • Children with any condition that can compromise respiratory function or the handling secretions or that can increase the risk of aspiration

Persons who can transmit influenza to those at high risk

  • Healthcare workers

  • Household contacts of children less than 6 months

  • Household contacts of individuals at increased risk for influenza complications

Three years ago, the influenza season began in October.  Please get your vaccine as soon as possible.
