As Dr. Byrum’s previous post indicates, due to the CDC’s recommendation, injectable flu vaccine is the only flu vaccine we will be giving. We have cancelled the flu mist vaccine due to the CDC’s recommendation.
Self Pay/ Private Insurance Patients–
Injectable flu vaccine for 6 months and up has arrived and is being given.
Medicaid/ VFC Patients —
Injectable flu vaccine for VFC patients has been received from the state. The state ships a set amount of vaccine for ARKIDS A patients and a set amount of vaccine for ARKIDS B patients. They are the same vaccine as our private insurance but it is provided by the state and we have to follow their guidelines to use. Please check this site for the ongoing availability of ARKIDS A and ARKIDS B.
ARKIDS B for ages 3 and up was out of stock but we have received more from the state and currently have.
