Flu Vaccine Still Available

We would like to notify our patients and their parents that flu season is still upon us. Even though we have not had high levels of flu activity in our area, flu season continues as usual into February and March. We still could be at risk for a large amount of flu in our area.

Therefore, it is not too late to get a flu vaccine. We still have a small supply of injectible flu vaccine, and a plentiful supply of FluMist (intranasal flu vaccine for older children and those without asthma). Also, the health department has lifted the restriction on who may receive the vaccine; therefore, we may vaccinate any eligible person who wishes to receive the flu vaccine.

Recently, the American Medical Association released an article emphasizing the above news. Please see the following web page to view a copy of this article on their website (http://www.ama-assn.org/ama/pub/category/14535.html).

If you or your child need a flu vaccine, please call our office (918) 728-2000 to schedule a time to be vaccinated or to ask questions about it.

Thank You,
South Tulsa Pediatrics
