Flu season is upon us! If you have not yet had your flu shot call our office to book ASAP. Flu shots are strongly recommended for all children 6 months of age and over and adults but considered most critical for those children under the age of 2 years and those with chronic medical conditions (kids with asthma- this means you!). Although we do have the intranasal flu vaccine available as a group we are strongly encouraging kids to get the old-fashioned injection based on some recent evidence from the USA stating that the intramuscular injection is more effective. Side effects are generally minor and include redness or pain at the site and fever within the first 24 hours of the injection.
Have more questions? Don't hesitate to ask one of us.
