What's New

Flu vaccine season is upon us!

We have vaccine in and have begun booking flu clinic visits.   We recommend vaccine for all children 6 months or older, unless there is a specific reason the child cannot get the vaccine (these exclusions are rare) .  If you're not sure if your child is eligible, feel free to call us, or you can read more here.  

(1) You can call us at 781-444-7816 to schedule a flu clinic visit for your child.

(2) If your child is in for a regularly scheduled visit, we can give the flu vaccine then.  We can often also give the vaccine at urgent visits for illness or injury, but in some cases -- depending on the situaiton -- we may recommend that you come back when your child is well.
