H1N1 Injectable Vaccine - 3 years and older

Please Do Not Call Our Office
Until you read this entire newsletter.

We have been notified that sometime next week we will be receiving two shipments totaling 800 doses of the injectable H1N1 influenza vaccine for children 3 years and older.
We ordered over 4000 doses. This will NOT be our only shipment.

We will begin scheduling appointments for Thursday, November 12th, (because we do not know exactly when the shipment will arrive). Please call after 10:00 to schedule your appointment. The last time we sent out this enews letter we had so many calls we could not schedule appointments for our sick children.

Something new... no need to wait on hold.
You may also send us an email to schedule your appointment. Send your appointment request to (you can click on the address, or just type it into "send" in your email) in the subject line please type H1N1 and your chart number.
In the body of the email please tell us the name and age of the child or children that you would like to bring in, let us know when you would like to come in - give us the day, date and the time you would like to have an appointment.
Your appointment will be scheduled and we will email you back a confirmation.

We will post an update to this blog if we can schedule appointments before that date.

Children under the age of 10 need to receive 2 doses - 30 days apart (if the supply permits). We can not "save" your child's second dose because it is important that we vaccinate as many children as possible with their first dose so that they receive "some" protection.

Each day we will schedule as many appointments as possible without compromising the safety of our patients and our staff.

LOVE the ability to make appointments via email. Thanks.
I can't believe you were working on Saturdy at 10:00 PM making appointments.
Your office is just AWESOME!
