Flu Vaccines

Coming soon- you can pick the date and time and book your child's flu shot online!!  More information to follow!

All children 6 months of age and older are advised to receive an influenza vaccine yearly. Children under the age of 9 who will be receiving the flu vaccine for the first time will require two (2) doses one month apart. We will only be administering the injectable flu vaccine again this year.  .
Flu immunization administration will begin upon delivery of the vaccines, which is dependent upon when the manufacturer ships the vaccine.  Patients scheduled for well child checks in August may be offered the opportunity to receive the flu vaccine at their appointment if the shipment allows. Please contact the office in early August to check availability of flu session appointment scheduling.

Expectant Parents and New Families

The choice of medical provider for your child(ren) is an important decision. We offer a FREE prenatal or new family visit to meet our pediatricians. We believe this opportunity allows you to make the best informed decision for your family. Please call to schedule your appointment. We look forward to meeting you!

Car Seat Safety Recommendations

Forestream Pediatric providers recommend parents and guardians follow the NY State laws regarding car seat safety. All children under the age of four are required by NY State law to ride in safety seats. Also, children are required to ride in child restraint systems until their 8th birthday. Additional information is available at the following web sites: https://dmv.ny.gov/more-info/safety-restraints
