While cleaning the vaccine fridge at the office, I found a surprise. Lucky for me, it didn’t smell bad or have a hazy blue mold growing on it! It seems that we had put aside some flu vaccine for some kids who either never came to get it or who got it out of the regular stock but the one set aside remained. SOOOOOOO, I have 6 doses of big kid flu vaccine (including one flumist) and 1 dose of under 36 months flu vaccine just begging to be had.
Flu season is in full swing but we see a peak in both February and April in Michigan so its not too late! Call and schedule your child (or yourself) for one of these few remaining flu vaccines!
Get your shot, wash your hands, and get lots of sleep and each day will be your best!
