September 25, 2019 -- Flu vaccine is now available for all children 6 months and older (either private or Medi-Cal insurance).
1) If your child is due for a well child visit between now and the end of November, he or she can receive the flu vaccine at their well child visit. If your child is not due for a well visit before December, please call our office to schedule OR self-schedule a flu vaccine appointment on the Patient Portal for your child to receive a flu vaccine.
2) To make an appointment online for your child to receive a flu vaccine, log in to our Patient Portal, select your child’s name, and click on the “Flu Clinic” tab to self-schedule an appointment during our flu clinic hours (offered on most Wednesday and Thursday afternoons from 4:30 to 5:15PM). If you are having trouble scheduling an appointment through the Portal or need a time other than during our flu clinic hours, please call our office to schedule a flu vaccine appointment.
3) Please remember that a flu vaccine appointment allows only enough time for your child to receive the flu vaccine. If your child needs to be seen by the doctor for any issues other than simply receiving a flu vaccine, please call our office to make a regular ill visit or well check appointment instead.
4) A yearly flu vaccine is recommended for all kids aged 6 months to 18 years old.
