THE QUADRIVALENT FLU VACCINE HAS ARRIVED!
We now have both injectable flu vaccine and intranasal FluMist. Now scheduling weekday appointments for high risk and healthy children.
We will have SATURDAY WALK-IN flu clinics on the following dates:
Saturday walk-in clinics are from 9:30 am - 12 noon, no appointment necessary.
The medical providers at Altos Pediatrics firmly believe that vaccines are safe, effective, and save lives. We will not accept patients who do not plan to immunize their children; to protect the children in our practice, we ask all new patients to demonstrate proof of vaccination before coming to the practice. Existing patients who are not adequately vaccinated are advised to schedule an appointment with a provider to formulate a plan to immunize their children. Existing patients who are unwilling to do so are asked to seek health care with another practice.
