for treatment tips or the specific page to which each illness or condition is hyperlinked. If you're not sure how quickly you need to have your child seen, see our Symptom Decision Chart
Cold and flu season is getting into full gear. We're seeing a lot of sick kids!
Illnesses commonly seen in our office this past week:
We've heard of a few flu cases in town, but we're still at very low levels
. It's not too late to get your flu vaccine!
Yes, we have flu vaccines in stock.
We ran out of flu vaccine for the older kids but were able to order more. You can sign up for our flu vaccine clinics on our portal when clinics are available. If you need portal access, please call the office. Your kids can also get the vaccine if they are in the office at a scheduled visit and are eligible. If your other kids are at the visit of a sibling, just ask and they can be vaccinated too. This allows flexibility if you cannot make a flu vaccine clinic and will already be in the office. We will be scheduling more vaccine clinics, but we can only schedule a few in advance to be sure we'll have stock at the clinic. Please be patient as we are continually getting more supplies (they can't ship several thousands to us at a time - we don't have room in our refrigerator and they are shipping all over the country).
