Flu Mist is now available

You can request an appointment or call our office at 978-577-0437 to schedule a flu mist vaccine for your child.

Note that we are not booking appointments for injectable vaccine for patients over age 3 until further notice.

Although we only have 1 new clinic at this time we do have flu mist available during most clinics.

We do have injectable vaccine for patients under age 3 as well as booster for this age group.

Walk ins may be turned away.

Live Nasal Flu Spray (Flu Mist) is available to patients who are 2 and older and who are healthy.

Influenza vaccine is grown in eggs. Patients with a true egg allergy will need to contact their allergist to find out whether they can receive the flu vaccine. If yes, the vaccine will need to be given by the allergist.

Allergy West patients with egg allergies can contact Dianne at 978-619-5447 to schedule an appointment to get the flu vaccine in that office. Patients who can tolerate eggs that are cooked or in baked goods can safely get the flu shot at Pediatrics West, but will need to wait in the office for 30 minutes following for observation. These patients will not be scheduled in flu clinics.

Visit the CDC website for more information regarding people with egg allergies.

Please call the office at (978) 577-0437 if your child has already received the flu vaccine so that medical records can be updated.

Thank you for helping us make this flu season run smoothly!
