Every year, we order private flu vaccines for our patients on commercial insurance plans and VFC (Vaccine for Children) flu vaccines for our patients on state insurance plans or who are self-pay. 

 

Currently we have the following flu vaccine available:

  • Private flu shots for all ages (6 months and older).
  • Private FluMist for patients 2 years and older who cannot receive the shot.
  • VFC (Vaccine for Children) flu shots for all ages (6 months and older). 
  • VFC (Vaccine for Children) FluMist for patients 2 years and older who cannot receive the shot. 

 

Flu vaccine is recommended for all persons 6 month of age and older by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP).  People with underlying health conditions such as asthma, diabetes, kidney disease to name a few are at risk to develop health complications from getting the flu virus.  Providers at Pediatric Associates of the Northwest recommend flu vaccine for patients 6 months and older.
