Flu shots now available for our patients at both locations

It’s that time of year again. We now have influenza vaccines available for all our patients in Salem and our new location in Silverton. As in past years, you may walk-in anytime we are open or we can get it done during an upcoming appointment. We are happy to accommodate siblings as well during office visits. Our goal is to vaccinate our patients!

This year will also be similar as last year as we will only be offering the injectable influenza vaccine. While the nasal vaccine did get relicensed our providers wanted to see more proof that it will work similarly to the injectable vaccine.
