Pediatric Flu Vaccinations
Wilmington Health Pediatrics offers flu clinics at 2421 Silver Stream Lane, Wilmington, and 4320 Henson Drive, Wilmington. The clinics are open Monday to Friday from 8:30-11:30 a.m. and 1:30-4:30 p.m. by appointment only.
“As a pediatrician, my main objective is to keep children healthy and happy,” said Wilmington Health’s Pamela Taylor, DO, FAAP. “Parents can assist me in achieving this goal by keeping up on all their child’s vaccinations including the flu vaccine. When your child receives the flu vaccine, you are preventing an avoidable, prolonged illness in not just your child, but other children as well.”
Wilmington Health Pediatrics recommends that children at least six months of age get the flu vaccine. If your child has a high risk of getting serious complications when sick, it is also strongly advised to have your child vaccinated. In addition, children with asthma, diabetes, chronic lung disease, and other medical conditions are also recommended to receive the vaccine.
