This year especially, it’s vital to get your child – and your whole family – vaccinated against influenza, the flu. The flu is a respiratory illness that will weaken immune systems. Contracting the flu and COVID-19, also a respiratory illness, will complicate symptoms, response time, treatments, recovery and long-term health challenges in ways that researchers cannot predict.
Each year, the flu shot is reformulated to protect against the viruses most likely to spread in the coming season. Last year’s flu shot no longer protects your child or you. You must get a new flu shot to be protected.
Our Drive Thru Flu Shot Clinics are quick, easy and convenient – your child doesn’t even need to get out of their car seat or booster! Appointments are filling quickly, so please click here to make an appointment. We are happy to vaccinate parents, grandparents and caretakers too!
The CDC urges everyone who is medically able, including children over the age of 6 months, to be vaccinated against the flu.
All Drive Thru Flu Shot Clinics are held at our Darien location at
85 Old Kings Hwy, North
