Influenza Information for Commonwealth Pediatrics
We apologize for the delay in the availability of flu clinics. In order for us to open up flu clinics, we need to have enough flu vaccine to provide to our patients. We are pleased to announce that we currently have some flu clinic dates available. Please note that if your insurance provides vaccines from the state’s supply, we may not have vaccine available yet for your child. As our supply increases, we will add more flu clinic dates. We appreciate your patience during this time and it is our sincere hope to vaccinate all of our patients as supply becomes available.
Please call our office at 804-320-1353 to check availability and schedule your appointment.
Remember, vaccination is the best way to protect your family from the flu!
