Coastal Kids encourages the flu vaccine for all children 6 months and older. For your convenience, the flu vaccine is now available to Coastal Kids parents as well.
If your child is at high risk for developing flu-related complications, please notify our office as your child’s health is of upmost importance to us.
- Last winter, the influenza season peaked in late December and early January.
- The 2014-2015 flu vaccines contain the same influenza strains as those in the 2013-2014 vaccines. However, because antibody levels decrease over time, annual vaccination is still recommended even if you received a flu vaccine last season.
- All vaccines administered at Coastal Kids are thimerosal/mercury free.
