What Flu Vaccines Do We Have Today?

We are sorry to announce that we are currently out of nasal vaccine (Flu Mist) for the seasonal flu. We are several shipments behind and are working with the supplier to try to get some vaccine, although it doesn’t look promising.

We still have some thimerosal-free vaccine for seasonal flu for children under 3 years of age. We do not have any injectable vaccine for children 3 years and over.

We have a few doses of injectable H1N1 vaccine, which we are saving for infants ages 6-23 months, and children with high risk medical conditions such as asthma or diabetes. We are expecting to have nasal H1N1 vaccine for children 2 years and older (without asthma) within the next two weeks.

If you have scheduled an appointment in our flu shot clinic, please call the day of the appointment to check to see if we have vaccine available. Our vaccine supply has been very undpredictable this year.

Please be patient with our front desk and nursing staff as we try to find ways to get all of our patients protected against the strains of influenza this year. It is quite a challenge, but we are committed to doing our best to help you protect your family.
