Pediatric Flu Shots
Pediatric Flu shots available in Port Townsend through the Jefferson Healthcare’s Family Medicine Clinic
Jefferson Healthcare’s Family Medicine Clinic is offering a one-day clinic to provide flu shots for children between the ages of 1 & 18. Drop-in flu vaccinations will be available at the clinic, located at 1010 Sheridan Street, Ste. 101, Port Townsend, from 1:00 to 5:00 pm on November 28. These are state supplied vaccines, therefore there is no out of pocket expense.
Influenza (“the flu”) is more dangerous than the common cold for children. Each year, millions of children get sick with seasonal influenza; thousands of children are hospitalized and some children die from flu. The single best way to protect your children from the flu is to get them vaccinated each year.
No appointment is necessary for a pediatric flu shot on November 28. The more people who get vaccinated, the more people will be protected from flu, including older people, very young children, pregnant women, and people with certain long-term health conditions who are more vulnerable to serious flu complications. The Family Medicine Clinic can be reached at (360) 385-3500.
