BOOK AN APPOINTMENT IN A FLU CLINIC:

 

We will book clinics as we receive vaccine.  Clinic dates will be posted on our website and by email.  All flu visits are by appointment only.

 

Clinics begin in September, and continue through the season.

 

Clinics are flu vaccine only visits, and sick children will not be seen at this time. 

 

Email: flu@chmed.com  for an appointment, or call the office at 978.975.3355

 

 

You will receive an email confirmation with the time of your clinic appointment.  We will most likely not have flexibility to offer a choice of times.

INFLUENZA: THE DISEASE

Influenza (The Flu) is a contagious respiratory illness cause by influenza virus and can cause mild to severe illness.

Transmission

  • Spread from person to person in respiratory droplets of a cough or sneeze.
  • Touch of respiratory droplets on another person or object and ten touches their own mouth and nose before washing their hands. 
HOW MANY DOSES OF FLU DOES YOUR CHILD NEED? 

Most patients who have received any kind of flu vaccine in the past will only need one dose of this year's vaccine, but patients under the age of 9 years getting flu vaccine for the first time may still need two doses.

 

IF YOUR CHILD IS ALREADY SCHEDULED FOR A VISIT:

If you have a visit booked for any other reason in the next few months, your child (and siblings) should receive a flu vaccine at that visit. Some illnesses prevent a child from receiving vaccines, we will book another time to return for a flu shot.  

Remember to keep flu and flu like illness in perspective.  For most children both versions of the flu are mild, self limited illnesses.  The most important thing always is always to keep a close eye on your child when they are sick, and if you are worried about their symptoms bring them in to the office.
