Influenza Vaccine Update
In response to concerns about Influenza vaccine availability, we would like to provide you the most up-to-date information about the current issues with vaccine supply.
The American Academy of Pediatrics has been gathering information to respond to concerns about flu vaccine distribution and delivery. There are current delays on shipments from several companies leading to most pediatric offices including ours having an inadequate supply of the flu vaccine.
We are doing everything in our power to acquire more vaccine as quickly as possible in order to get all of our patients vaccinated prior to the start of the flu season. At this point we are focusing on the highest risk patients including those less that 5 year of age and those with chronic illness including asthma.
We will continue to update the website as more information and more vaccines become available. We do anticipate that we will receive more flu vaccines, but the timeline is currently unknown.
If you have any questions or concerns, or if your child qualifies as high risk, please contact our office for further information. Thank you for your understanding.
