Please be aware that the CDC recommends that:
"Everyone 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine every year by the end of October, if possible.  However, getting vaccinated later is ok."



As of now

WE CURRENTLY HAVE INJECTABLE FLU VACCINE ONLY


If your child is receiving the flu vaccine for the very first time this year, and is under 9 years old, he/she will need to return to the office a month after the first dose for a second dose of flu vaccine.



As we have done in the past, Framingham Pediatrics will be providing many opportunities for our patients to receive flu vaccine throughout the flu season:

if your child is in our office for a well visit during the flu season, he/she can receive the flu vaccine at that time.  We are also able to provide flu vaccine during this visit to any siblings present in the office at that time.
 

 


 

If you have any questions, please contact your provider.

Here is some information about flu vaccine:

There are two types of vaccine:

 

During a Flu Clinic Visit:

Please be aware that our nursing staff will administer the vaccine and a physician will not be available to see your child during the flu clinics.    

Please note:

If your child receives the vaccine at another facility, please email our office, mail@framinghampediatrics.com, with the date administered so we can keep our records complete. 

Finally:

If you have questions or would like to discuss the vaccine further with your doctor, please call during our regular Call Time 8:30 to 9:00 daily.
