School has begun and your child will come in contact with viruses everyday. Protect them from the flu by scheduling an appointment for the flu vaccine for this season.

The vaccine is recommended for children over 6 months of age; we are also providing vaccines for patients and other family members.

Children younger than 9 years of age need two doses of the flu vaccine, one month apart, if this is their first time to get the flu immunization.

FluMist, the nasal spray form of the vaccine, can be given to children older than 2 years of age if they do not have a history of asthma.

Vaccines are given by appointment only. Please call  (512) 733-6437 to schedule an appointment now!
