The next dates for our Flu Vaccine Clinic will be Tuesday November 18th from 9 am to 3 pm, and Thursday November 20th from 9 am to 3 pm. We will also hold a Flu Vaccine Clinic Saturday November 22nd from 9 am to 12 pm. Please bring your health card to the visit. We are happy to administer the flu vaccine to children and their parents. The nasal version of the influenza vaccine, Flumist, is now available in our office.
As per the new recommendations for the flu season 2014 to 2015, the nasal flu vaccine has been found to be more efficacious than the intramuscular vaccine in the age group 2 to 8 years based on recent studies. Based on whether your child has received the flu vaccine in the past, we will decide if one or two doses of nasal flu vaccine is required. If your child has a cold or is actively wheezing then it is better to postpone the nasal flu vaccine or the intramuscular vaccine may be offered instead, after your child is examined by one of our Pediatricians. We have received our consignment of nasal flu vaccines and are offering it to patients for $25 per dose. We will continue to post information regarding flu vaccine clinic days on our website.
Maple Kidz Clinic is happy to announce the addition of two new General Pediatricians to the clinic, Dr. Charlene Stirling and Dr. Samantha Witt. Both Dr. Stirling and Dr. Witt are available for consultations as well as are accepting new patients. Please contact the office to schedule an appointment.
