Thank you for contacting coastal kids regarding the h1n1 vaccination.
Coastal Kids, a premier pediatrics group with five convenient locations – in Newport Beach, Laguna Niguel, Laguna Hills, Ladera Ranch and Irvine – offers the best quality healthcare to OC families with it’s team of highly trained physicians and wide-ranging services. Coastal Kids is open 7 Days a week and caters to stay-at-home parents to working professionals with families. Our staff is available 24 hours a day and extended office hours and weekend visits are available to patients who need immediate medical attention.
As a result of Coastal Kids’ proactive planning, coastal kids anticipated a significant outbreak of novel Influenza A (H1N1) and prepared to care for it’s patients during this season. One of the most significant steps was to obtain and administer sufficient amounts of the vaccine to prevent the illness from affecting the patients and their families.
As a result, Coastal Kids was one of the first medical practices to receive and administer the different types of the H1N1 vaccine. In addition, Coastal Kids has opened it’s practice to non-patients who fit the high-risk CDC criteria that require the vaccine.
The current CDC criteria include but are not limited to the following groups:
1) persons between the ages of 6 months and 24 years old
2) pregnant woman
3) people who live with or care for children younger than 6 months of age
4) healthcare and emergency medical services personnel
5) people of ages of 25 through 64 years of age who are at a higher risk for 2009 H1N1 because of chronic health disorders or compromised immune systems.
For a full detailed review if the high risk criteria please refer to the CDC website at www.CDC.gov/H1N1/
