Flu Vaccine Notification
AN APPOINTMENT IS NECESSARY IN ORDER TO RECEIVE A FLU VACCINATION.
Please remember that all flu clinics are scheduled with a NURSE ONLY so any other medical issues cannot be addressed at that time and would require another appointment to be scheduled. Also, because of the fast pace due to each time slot being only 5 minutes, we can not administer any other vaccines other than the flu vaccine during our flu clinic times.
Flu Vaccine Information You Should Know:
Key facts about seasonal influenza (flu) can be found at www.cdc.gov.
All of our single dose syringe flu vaccine is preservative free, latex free, antibiotic free and mercury free.
Flu clinics are for flu vaccines only. A physician will not be available at flu clinics as these are nurse only visits.
If you think the person getting the shot may be ill, unsure of whether or not the person getting the shot should receive the flu shot that day, or you have questions regarding the flu vaccine, please call our office to speak with a nurse before your flu clinic appointment.
Things that would make it so the person getting the shot would not be able to get the Flu vaccination on the day of the appointment or need for you to call and reschedule the appointment.
- Person getting the shot is ill or has had a fever in the last 24-48 hours. (If they have mild cold symptoms with no fever, they are still able to receive the flu vaccine if you wish.)
To be eligible to receive the Flu Vaccination :
- Person getting the shot must not be ill or have had a fever in the last 24-48 hours. (Mild cold symptoms without fever are not a contraindication to receive the flu vaccine).
- Person getting the shot must not have had a severe reaction to a previous dose of the flu vaccine, injection or intranasal.
- Person getting the shot must not have any history of Guillain Barre’ Syndrome, an illness associated with paralysis.
FLU VACCINES WILL BE ADMINISTERED AND CLINICS WILL BE HELD AS LONG AS VACCINE PRODUCT IS AVAILABLE. PLEASE CALL OUR OFFICE FOR UPDATES, CHANGES AND/OR CANCELLATIONS.
