9/11/19: It is once again the time of year for flu vaccination. The CDC, American Academy of Pediatrics, Dept. of Health and Scarsdale Pediatrics all recommend yearly influenza vaccination for all children 6 mos. of age and older. The flu is a serious and potentially deadly disease that is very contagious. There is no 100% guarantee against infection, but your best protection is yearly vaccination. Good hand-washing and proper hygiene are also important. We have received our supply of influenza shots for all children and teens 6 mos. and older. Children under 9 yrs. of age who have never received a flu vaccine (or only received 1 dose) should receive 2 doses, a month apart. All others only need 1 dose this year. As of this writing, we do not have nasal FluMist available (check later for updates). If your child has a routine check-up scheduled this fall, he/she may receive the vaccine then. Otherwise, you may call the office at 914-725-0800 (during regular hours please) and schedule an appointment with a nurse.
