It’s that time of year again, kids are back to school and we are already seeing waves of sick children coming through our doors. We strongly encourage everyone over 6 months old to get their flu vaccine. The CDC estimates an average of 34,000 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 welcome Where the Garden Grows Medical Clinic into our office to administer flu shots to whole family (that means moms, dads, and even grandparents, too!).
Where the Garden Grows will be leasing space in our office for the convenience of those who wish to use their services.

Flu Clinics will start Wednesday, September 27th. Schedule an appointment for your family to get theirs today!
- 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.
