  • Flu Clinics

    Flu shots are now available at both of our locations. We are still waiting for our shipment of Flumist (the flu for the nose). Once it is available we will update our status. Please contact the office to schedule your flu shot visit. If you have an appointment coming up, we will happily give it at that visit. The AAP recommends the injectable flu vaccine over the nasal vaccine.
