On 8/19/2020, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health announced that flu shots will now be required in MA for all students (6 months & up) who are attending any school or childcare. Students must receive the flu vaccine by Dec 31, 2020 for the 2020-2021 flu season. Pediatric offices like ours receive their vaccines from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Currently we do not yet have the flu vaccine and do not know exactly when the vaccine will arrive. When we do receive the vaccine, we will send out a message to all our patients and will update our website and social media. We will make every effort to distribute vaccines quickly and safely.
If your child receives the flu vaccine elsewhere, please send us a MyChart message so that we can update our records. We appreciate your continued support and patience.
