No walk-in flu clinic for 11/14

Until further notice H1N1 influenza vaccines will be given by appointment only. Currently all available shot appointments are filled or being filled by those on waiting list. To get your child on a waiting list send an email to h1n1@childhoodhealth.com. At this time the waiting list is only for H1N1 influenza vaccine. We are having two of our nurses working full time to manage the list and administer vaccine.

We received two batches of vaccine making this week the best for vaccine shipments for our clinic. We are working to get it quickly into kids. The first batch was only for four years and up while second batch included vaccine that can be given to all children 6 months and older.

We did receive some nasal seasonal vaccine from the state for our patients on the Oregon Health Plan or uninsured (Vaccine for Children program). We still do not have more doses for patients on commercial health plans. The nasal vaccine can be given to patients 2 years and older without asthma or other serious chronic disease. We will start scheduling for seasonal flu vaccines once we have more doses available. No injectable seasonal vaccine is available at this time.
