To all our patients/families,
It’s that time of year, time for flu shots. We will be doing things a little different this year and planning to do our flu shot clinics as a drive-thru.
The drive-thru will be located at our Delhi office on Anderson Ferry Road. The first clinic will be on Sunday, September 20th from 10am-1pm. We ask that you call ahead of time to schedule a time to come for the shots so that we can keep things flowing well for you. Flu shots can be given at age 6 months and above.
For kids age 5 and over, we will want them to be wearing short-sleeves or a tank top so we can give the shot in their upper arm. For kids under age 5, we ask that they arrive wearing either shorts, a skirt or dress, or only a onesie so we can give the shot in their thigh. The shots can be given in the car, or we can have the child come out of the car into our tent for the shot – whichever the parent and medical assistant think will be best for the child.
If your child needs shots in addition to the flu shot, please call to schedule an appointment during our normal hours (we will not have other shots available during the drive-thru).
Our vaccine stocks come at different times throughout the year based on whether they are being provided by the Vaccines for Children program or ordered separately for our vaccine stock for kids with private insurance. We have not yet received the shipment from the Vaccines for Children program, which will provide our flu shots for patients with Ohio or Indiana Medicaid. The first clinic on 9/20 will be available only for patients with private insurance due to the source of our current stock. As soon as we receive the VFC stock of vaccines, we will provide an update so all of our families can schedule their flu shot visit.
Thank you for working with us during this difficult time while we adapt to new flows to help keep everyone safe from COVID-19. And thank you for letting us take care of your children!
