Vaccinations & Flu Shots

Vaccinations

Dr. Selsky and Family First Pediatrics understand that good preventative healthcare for your child should start at birth. Not only will immunization protect your child, but the community from potentially deadly infections. Family First Pediatrics follows the immunization schedule recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Family First Pediatrics offers a wide variety of vaccinations including:

Flu Shots

Flu season runs from October to May, so it is best to get your child’s flu shot early in the season to help give their bodies a chance to build up an immunity. Do not worry if your child receives his or her flu shot later in the season, as it is better than not receiving one at all. While children of every age should receive a flu shot, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention highly recommends that all children and adolescents over the age of 6 months receive a flu shot. Children under the age of 5 years have a higher risk of complications due to flu.

Making sure your child receives preventative healthcare from birth. To schedule your child for their vaccination or flu shot, please call Family First Pediatrics at (407) 335-4760.
