Flu: It’s Not Too Late to Vaccinate

Although health experts recommend influenza vaccination as early in the season as possible, it is still not too late. Flu season usually lasts well into the spring.

Current guidelines call for immunization of everyone 6 months of age and older. Please review the vaccination status of all patients who come into your office regardless of the reason for the visit. For patients who are reluctant to be immunized, please take the time to discuss the benefits and safety of the vaccine.

Note: We have waived all copays, deductibles and coinsurance for flu vaccination if the only reason for the office visit is to get a flu shot.
