FLU SHOT UPDATES – January 2021
If your child is under 5 years of age, please submit this flu shots request form.
CURRENT STATUS: (updated: January 2021) We are offering flu shots clinics, but quantities are limited, please read our information below.
PLEASE BE PATIENT: Arrival time of flu shots is out of our control. Please do not call or email the clinic for flu shots, we are arranging flu shots only via our request form. After you fill in the form you WILL get a call, but it may take a little time. Thanks for your patience!
CHILDREN UNDER 5 YEARS OLD: Children younger than 5 years of age cannot (at the moment) receive flu shots outside of doctor’s offices. Therefore, in an effort to ensure that the youngest patients (who are at the highest risk of severe flu) receive the flu shot early, we will be prioritizing children age 6 months-4 years in our flu clinics first. Our preliminary plan is to offer flu shots ONLY for children age 6 months-4 years.
Should we receive ample vaccination doses, we may consider opening up clinics to children 5 years and older. This is IF we can provide safe flu shot clinics ensuring physical distance and safety for patients and staff.
If you have a child 6 months – 4 years, please let us know if you would like to have your child receive the flu shot this year, by submitting this form.
CHILDREN 5 YEARS OLD & UP: They are welcome to visit a pharmacy once flu shots are available there. Pharmacies may in fact receive their shipments of flu shot before us (we know, this is not ideal!)
WE WILL CONTACT YOU: As our flu shots arrive, we will contact you until the flu clinics fill up. Then wait for the next delivery, and contact more families.
IT IS OUR GOAL FOR EVERY CHILD TO BE VACCINATED AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE.
WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE.
