A Nasal Spray Vaccine Notice

For the 2016-17 season, we will not be offering or recommending the nasal spray version of the influenza vaccine. Recent data has shown that during the past few influenza seasons the nasal spray vaccine did not perform as well as anticipated. We continue to strongly recommend vaccination against influenza for our patients aged 6 months and older, and will administer the injectable form of the vaccine.  As we do each year, flu vaccine will be available during evening clinics, by appointment, in the fall. Dates for those clinics will be posted here. If it is more convenient to have your child(ren) vaccinated during office hours,  an appointment with our nursing staff is also an option.
