Great Destinations Flu Clinic
We strongly encourage everyone over 6 months old to get their flu vaccine. Between 25,000 and 35,000 people die from influenza or influenza-related complications every year. If the entire family receives their flu vaccine, this will provide even greater protection to everyone in your home. For babies under 6 months-old, we strongly urge anyone caring for the baby, including grandparents, babysitters, older siblings, and parents, to get their flu vaccine. This is why we are proud to offer flu shots to children and adults!
This year FluMist is not available. We will have the Flu Shot available. The CDC (Center for Disease Control) and the ACIP (Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices) have recommended against using FluMist for fear it will not be effective in preventing Influenza this year.)
Patients of Great Destinations can receive the flu vaccine and have their insurance billed. Great Destinations Pediatrics is pleased to partner with Where the Garden Grows Medical Clinic to administer flu shots to whole family (that means moms, dads, and even grandparents, too!).
Important things to know:
- Where the Garden Grows is not contracted with any insurance plans.
- A receipt will be provided to the patient to submit to their insurance plan for reimbursement.
Flu Clinic schedules will be added once we have received our first shipment of flu vaccine. The clinics will start Wednesday, September 27th.
