The 2015-2016 flu vaccines are officially available. To make it easier on you and your child, we are offering the immunization in the form of a nasal spray (instead of a flu shot) for all kiddos older than two without chronic medical issues.
SCHOOL AND SPORTS PHYSICALS:
It's that time of year again! Schools, camps and sports teams will be asking for physical forms for your child, often before allowing them to participate. Before our providers can fill these out, your kiddos must be up to date on their well child checks and immunizations. That usually means your child must have had a well-check within a year of the date that the physical form is signed. However, depending on the organization or school district, sometimes we can fill out these forms within two years.
To make this process go a bit smoother, you can call both us and your child's organization to make sure your kiddo does not need a check up or nurse visit before the form is filled out. If you do need an appointment, you can bring or request a physical form when you come in.
You can also download and fill out our General Physical Form if it will suffice.
Please allow 24 - 48 hours for the forms to be completed. They can be picked up, faxed or mailed to you.
Whooping cough is an issue this summer, so it is best to be up to date on immunizations and educated on symptoms and treatments. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention site has a ton of information on it. Our nurses recommend you check it out! You can find the page here.
