On Monday October 18, we will be providing flu shots for ALL patients including children and adolescents. Please call to schedule an flu shot appointment. First come, first served! Remember that egg allergy does not require any special precaution when you get a flu shot.

If you have had an allergic reaction to the flu shot itself, you must see your allergist before we give you a flu shot.

Finally, you may get your COVID (at another site, such as a pharmacy) and flu vaccines on the same day if that is most convenient for you.

 

New mask requirement in our offices

In order to protect our staff and other patients in our offices, In accordance with the updated CDC guidelines, we would appreciate if you would not wear a solitary cloth/fabric facemask when in our office. Please wear a surgical mask, KN95, or a surgical N95 mask. Any questions, please call our office.

COVID-19 VACCINES

We get many questions about the COVID vaccine and hope this post will answer yours.

At this time we are not offering the Covid Vaccine in our offices, but please check back to our website for any further updates.

As you know, vaccines in Connecticut are offered in phases depending on your risk group. As of this writing (1/18/21), we are in Phase 1B. Phases 1A and 1B candidates can be viewed here. Continue to check the Connecticut Department of Health web site and pay attention to local newscasts for updates.

The next group to be eligible will include people younger than 75 with high risk conditions identified by the CDC here. Keep checking this site for updates.

When you are eligible, you will be able to sign up for a shot appointment through the CT Department of Health Vaccine Administration Management System (VAMS).

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE: Do not try to sign up until you are eligible. DO NOT LIE on the VAMS as getting a vaccine before you are eligible might prevent someone at higher risk than you from getting vaccinated.
