Frequently Asked Flu Questions: 2019-2020 Influenza Season
Western Wake Pediatrics offers seasonal flu vaccines in Cary to our patients each year.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends everyone 6 months of age and older get vaccinated against influenza each year as soon as the vaccine is available in early fall. The CDC encourages vaccination against the flu each year because immunity can wane over time. Getting vaccinated early will ensure your child is protected throughout the influenza season.
Vaccines are available for established patients of Western Wake Pediatrics. Please call to make an appointment to receive your vaccine. Our Phone number is (919) 859-9991 option 2 for scheduling.
Please bring with you a completed Screening Questionnaire for Influenza Vaccination (English Version) (Spanish Version)
