Seasonal Flu Vaccine Update – 10/6/15

Patients and families of Stamford Pediatric Associates,

We hope everyone is having a healthy fall season.

Below are dates for additional flu clinics through the end of October in both offices. We have limited supplies of flu mist nasal vaccine available for ages 2 through 21. There are medical restrictions for flu mist, therefore, our triage nurse will be evaluating patient’s eligibility for the vaccine prior to scheduling an appointment.

If your child has a check-up scheduled soon, you do not need to come to a flu clinic. Your child will get the flu vaccine at the check-up appointment.

More flu clinic dates will be posted in the coming weeks. We will send an alert and update this website as more dates become available.

Clinics will be held on the following dates:

Stamford Office
Wednesday, October 14 – All Day
Wednesday, October 21 – All Day
Wednesday, October 28 – All Day
Darien Office
Thursday, October 15 – All Day
Thursday, October 22 – All Day
Thursday, October 29 – All Day

Please call to schedule an appointment.

Book of the Month – Chrysanthemum

Reading Aloud: A Pathway to Talking about Feelings With Young Children
Fall is officially here, and its cooler days and longer nights provide a great opportunity to curl up and read with your pre-schooler. In my work as a parenting consultant, I often encourage parents to read books with their young children as a way to facilitate discussions about difficult feelings their children may have. Direct conversations about their own feelings are sometimes difficult for children, and books can be a useful aid.

New Mom’s Group

The New Mom’s Support Group is a bi-monthly informal meeting for moms of newborns held every other Wednesday from 1 pm to 2 pm in our Darien office. The goal of this group is to assist in making this exciting but scary and exhausting period in a parent’s life as fulfilling as possible and to serve as a support system. It is a place to share concerns, questions, and experiences.
