Flu season is in full swing. Our offices are prepared to help you protect your children from the Flu. It is critical that all Floridians get the flu vaccine to protect against infection and help prevent the spread of seasonal flu to others. It is never too late to vaccinate – get your flu shot. While most cases of flu are mild, there are exceptions.
In Florida alone, flu activity is on the rise, particularly in groups at high risk for severe illness such as children, pregnant women and people with an underlying medical condition. It is for this reason that we urge all parents to get their children vaccinated.
The flu vaccine is safe, effective and could potentially save your life or your child’s life. We recommend the vaccine for anyone over the age of 6 months, including pregnant women. The flu vaccine is offered in all of our Florida offices. Additionally, the flu vaccine is offered in many convenient locations, including doctor’s offices, clinics, health departments, retail stores, pharmacies, health centers and by many employers. We encourage you to take advantage of the flu vaccine whenever and wherever it is offered.
To make an appointment for your child’s flu vaccine, please call our offices to schedule an appointment.
