FLU SHOT UPDATE:·
For those with commercial insurance, we should have a large shipment coming in next week. For those with Medicaid, Medicaid cannot tell us when our shipment will arrive. The manufacturer tells us the delay has been due to the multiple hurricanes and other natural disasters that have backed up shipping.
We are scheduling a flu clinic for those with commercial insurance Nov 7, call for an appt. You can schedule for another day if Nov 7 does not work with your schedule.
For those with Medicaid, you may call the Pueblo Health Dept Immunization Clinic 583-4300 to schedule an appt if desired.
For those 9yo and over, you may also go to your local pharmacy.
We apologize for the delays and we understand how frustrating this has been.
It's that time of year again. Time for flu shots. Please call to make your appointments!!
Flu season runs from October to May and the Centers for Disease Control and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend that children over the age of 6 months should be vaccinated. Why? The flu isn’t just a bad cold; it’s a deadly and highly contagious illness that causes the most harm to kids. The flu can have your child in bed for a whole week or more with a fever, painful cough and body aches. Even worse, the flu can lead to serious complications such as pneumonia, hospitalization and severe dehydration. Every year, about 20,000 kids younger than 5 years old are hospitalized with complications from the flu.
To protect their health, all children 6 months and older should be vaccinated against flu each year. Vaccinating young children, their families, and other caregivers can also help protect them from getting sick. These children are more likely to have severe flu illness that results in hospitalization or death.
We have a new electronic medical records system!!
If you would like to access your records, please feel free to contact us at this portal.
Our Saturday hours may have changed due to scheduling issues with Covid-19. The hours may vary.
