-If it is your child’s first year getting the flu vaccine, he or she will need two doses of the flu vaccine at least 4 weeks apart.
-If your child has only received one dose of flu vaccine in his or her life and is 8 years old or younger, he or she will need 2 doses of the flu vaccine 4 weeks apart as well.
-The flu shot is approved for 6 months and older.
-For those children under 6 months of age or those who cannot receive a flu vaccine due to a medical condition or an allergy, it is recommended that the families and caregivers of those children are vaccinated for the current season so as to best protect the child.
**Please note, we will only be providing the flu shot this year. No Flumist is available this season.
