New Live Calls

On  Tuesday, May 1st Milton Pediatrics will be transitioning to a new phone system. Our nurses will now be answering live calls from a queue system and you will no longer need to leave a voicemail for a callback. The live calls will begin at 9a until 5 pm.

Between the hours of 7a-8a, we will have our call hour where there you will leave a message and one of our nurses will call back. Between the hours of 8a-9a, you will be connected to our after-hours answering service.

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.

2017-2018 FLU VACCINE AND CLINIC INFORMATION

We have recently received our first shipment of flu vaccine for the 2017-2018 season.

Flu vaccines can be given when you bring your child in for routine care. We will also be administering the flu vaccine at nurse visits by appointment only throughout the flu season, these appointments can be scheduled in advance.  We have weekday and weekend appointments available. Please call the nurse’s line 781-356-6200 option 3 during regular business hours to schedule an appointment. Please call in the morning to arrange same day appointments; appointments for a later date can be arranged as well.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone 6 months of age and older get a seasonal flu vaccine. Vaccination is especially important for children younger than 5 years of age and children of any age with a long-term health condition like asthma, diabetes and heart disease. These children are at higher risk of serious flu complications.

We will not be offering the nasal spray version of the flu vaccine, FluMist, this year. The CDC has recommended against the administration of the FluMist this year due to poor efficacy the past few flu seasons. http://www.cdc.gov/media/releases/2016/s0622-laiv-flu.html Please be advised that occasionally throughout the season we may be may be temporarily out of some formulations of the vaccines.  These supplies are replenished as we receive additional shipments from the state.

 

Please speak to our nursing staff if you have any questions about the flu vaccine.
