We still have flu vaccines available.  The CDC recommends continuing to give the vaccine through April.
The flu vaccine should be given to everyone 6 months and older, as it is the best option for protection during the illness season.The annual flu vaccine significantly reduces a child's risk of severe influenza and death. We will offer both the injectable and the nasal flu mist vaccines. 

To schedule please call the office at 859-341-5400. (Unfortunately we are no longer scheduling flu shots via the portal.)

Kentucky HEALTH is Governor Bevin’s signature Medicaid program that stands for “Helping to
Engage and Achieve Long Term Health.” Also called an “1115 Medicaid Waiver,” this program is an
alternative to traditional Medicaid, meaning that the federal government has “waived” certain
rules, allowing Kentucky to make changes to the way Medicaid is administered.

Some children will develop redness and swelling after vaccines.  This soft tissue reaction can be a small area, but sometimes it is a larger area. This can happen with any vaccine and is not considered an infection or allergic reaction. Many children are not symptomatic from this (it looks worse than it feels).  Simple measures to help relieve pain or itching include cold compresses, acetaminophen or ibuprofen, and children's Benadryl.
