FOR PARENTS OF ADVANCED PEDIATRICS
We are pleased to announce that we can offer the Flu-Mist nasal spray form of influenza immunization to parents this year.
We will be making the Flu Mist available to parents in the practice during our Flu Clinics only. These take place from 8AM to 11:30 AM this Saturday, September 29 and the following Saturday, October 6. The Flu Mist immunization will cost $30 per dose, a charge we will collect at the front desk.
In order to be sure we continue to provide the best service possible to your children, we will not be offering the Flu Mist for adults during the week, as it would disrupt our ability to attend to the children.
For whatever reason, it appears that it is difficult for adults to get the Flu Mist, hospitals, employers, and drug stores seem to only stock the shot. So we are very pleased we can help the parents of Advanced Pediatrics find a way to be protected from the flu without a shot.
To secure your Flu Mist immunization, simply call our office and make an appointment for Saturday, either Sept. 29 or Oct. 6. Two restrictions do apply- the Flu Mist format cannot be used if you are over 50 years old or if you have a chronic illness such as diabetes or asthma.
