H1N1 Vaccine Recall - Non-Safety Related Recall

You have no doubt heard on the news about the recall for some doses of H1N1 vaccine for children 6 months to 35 months. These doses were from four different lot numbers.

California received doses from only one of the four lot numbers that are being recalled.

Our office did NOT receive any doses from the recalled lot numbers.

We are still out of stock of the H1N1 vaccine - but will update the blog if we receive any new information.

We are out of our small supply of H1N1 vaccines

As Friday dawns, we will no longer be able to administer H1N1 vaccines as our short supply has been snapped up.

The LATimes this am noted that county health departments have some H1N1 vaccines, and are administering it.

We do have the "baby" seasonal flu vaccines for children aged 6 months to 3 years, and the seasonal flu vaccine for 3 years and older in our office, so stop by, or ask your doctor at your visits over the next couple of weeks about the vaccine.

H1N1 injectable vaccine arrival

Today we received a few doses (100) of the H1N1 injectable vaccine for children and young adults 4 years of age and older. If you are in the office this next couple of days, inquire about its availability. This will be available for those who need the FIRST dose only.

We do have plenty of seasonal flu (injectable) vaccine still available for those aged 3 years and older.

flu (seasonal) vaccine arrival

We are glad to report that we received 500 doses of the seasonal flu vaccine today (NO H1N1 as yet). This vaccine will be for those who are three years of age and older. We encourage all pregnant moms to get this vaccine as soon as possible. We will not be receiving any more of the nasal mist seasonal vaccines.

You can call now to make an appointment for your child's vaccine.
