2021 Flu Vaccine Information
Flu vaccine is now available, and we want to help get your child protected. With the COVID-19 pandemic ongoing, it is more important than ever to protect your child from viruses like influenza.
There are two different types of influenza vaccine available:
Injectable: Given to patients aged 6 months and above. Patients with a history of severe reaction to eggs should be given this vaccine in a health care office.
Nasal Flumist: Given to children 2 years old and above. Children aged 2 – 4 years old with asthma or a history of wheezing in the past 12 months should not receive Flumist. Children who are immunocompromised or in close contact with a severely immunocompromised person should not get Flumist. Children aged 5 years and older with a diagnosis of asthma should ask their health care provider whether he/ she may receive Flumist.
