INFLUENZA (FLU) AND/OR COVID VACCINES – FALL 2023
The Influenza Vaccine has been very helpful in the prevention of influenza for our patients. We have strongly encouraged all of our patients to get the vaccine each year, and the result has been fewer and/or milder cases of influenza.
The COVID Vaccines have been very helpful in the reducing of symptoms and prevention of COVID. We strongly encouraged all of our patients to consider getting the current COVID vaccine which is protective against the most recent strains.
Carroll Pediatric Center has both the Influenza and COVID vaccines available for all of our patients over 6 months of age. You can get these vaccines by calling and making an appointment at your convenience, or you can make an appointment for our special Flu and/or COVID Vaccine Clinic.
In order to vaccinate the greatest number of people safely and efficiently, we will have a Vaccine Clinic that will be held outside on our rear parking lot on Tuesday, October 10 from 5 pm to 7 pm. Appointments are required to attend – walk-ins will not be accepted. This clinic is open to our patients and their family members for the Flu vaccine and only our patients for the COVID vaccine. BOTH FLU & COVID VACCINES CAN BE ADMINISTERED AT THE SAME TIME OR AT SEPARATE TIMES.
Here is the process:
Appointments for vaccines are also available any time the office is open. IF YOU CAN NOT ATTEND THE VACCINE CLINIC, please call the office and let us know when you want to come in for your vaccines.

PLEASE REMEMBER TO SCHEDULE ANY NEEDED PHYSICAL EXAMS.

This is also an excellent time to arrange for your child’s annual physical exam. (Many children skipped regular exams during the past 2 years.) Every child 3 years and older should have an annual physical exam. (The children under 3 years old have physicals at months 1, 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 24, and 30.)
Even if your child doesn’t seem to have any significant physical issues, this is an excellent time to:
