After a great response in years past, we have decided to hold another flu shot clinic! There will be a tent located in parking lot, please park and bring your child(ren) up. In case of inclement weather please contact the office or check for Facebook for cancellation. Flu shots are available for established patients, aged 6 months and up. Small children (approximately age 4 years and under) will be given their shot in their thigh. Older children will get the shot in their arm. Please dress accordingly. As always, flu shots are given in the office a on a walk-in basis.
If you have any questions prior to the clinic please call us at (859)525-8181. Future clinic dates will be announced based on availability of supply.
Beware of Flu Vaccines From Retail Based Clinics For the Following Reasons…
Doctors at Pediatrics of Florence are getting notifications from retail based clinics that some of our patients are getting flu shots outside of our office. We are glad that you have chosen to protect yourself and your children from the flu but there are reasons why you should come to us for your flu shots.
Why You Should Come To Our Office For Flu Shots….
- Most retail pharmacies and clinics only carry the trivalent flu vaccine that protects against 3 flu strains. Our quadrivalent flu vaccine protects against 4 flu strains.
- Retail clinics do not give mercury free vaccines. We do!
- Retail clinics do not give child friendly flu immunisations. We do!
- Retail clinics do not have staff specifically trained for children. We do!
Pediatrics of Florence provides the flu shots without you ever needing an appointment. Patients typically pay nothing out of pocket. Waiting time in our office for a flu shot is guaranteed to be less than what you would wait at a retail based clinic.
