Flu and Other Vaccinations

For all of our patients planning to receive the flu (or any other) vaccination, it is strongly recommended that patients come to Milton Pediatrics for vaccination accompanied by another person, ideally a parent/guardian.

If patients under 18 years of age arrive to Milton Pediatrics for vaccination without a parent/guardian, this person will be called in order to receive permission to administer the vaccination.

In addition,  if any patient of driving age arrives alone for vaccination he/she will be asked to remain an additional 15 minutes to be monitored for any adverse symptoms or reactions.
