Receiving the influenza vaccine is the best protection against the flu. Southdale Pediatrics wants to help make it easy to get your family immunized.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends everyone 6 months of age and older get the flu shot. Children under 9 years of age being vaccinated for influenza for the first time require two doses of the vaccine at least 4 weeks apart. If a child under 9 years of age did not receive at least two prior doses of seasonal flu (before this season) in their lifetime, then two doses of flu vaccine will be required this season. Anyone 9 years of age or older only require one dose of the flu vaccine. Flu vaccine is not approved for children under 6 months of age.
Please note: Southdale Pediatrics will not be offering intranasal (FluMist) vaccine this season
We are now scheduling flu shots!

Masks are required in our clinic regardless of vaccination status. If your child is ill on the date of their flu shot or has a COVID test pending, please reschedule their appointment.
Due to COVID-19, we will not be offering walk-in flu shots this year.
