FLU SHOT UPDATE:
The flu shots have not yet arrived. When they do, we will begin with vaccinating people over the age of 65 and those under 65 with high risk medical conditions.
Please check this website regularly. We will update it immediately once they have arrived and we are able to start administering the vaccine.
We expect that after 2 weeks we should be opening this up to all patients and all ages.
There are 2 flu vaccines again this year:
For seniors over 65.
For those under 65.
We generally recommend all adults and children over 6 mos of age get the flu shot annually.
This year we feel even stronger than usual that all children (over 6 mos) and all adults should get the flu shot- Regardless of their being considered high risk or not.
We will begin however with prioritizing all the patients who are over 65, and those under 65 with high risk medical conditions.
There is a complete list below.
Many pharmacies will also be administering the flu shots. We encourage you to get the shot wherever is more convenient.

Adults 65 years and older
Children younger than 2 years old
Neurologic and neurodevelopment conditions
