The flu vaccine should be given to everyone 6 months and older,
as it is the best option for protection during the upcoming 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 visit our online Patient Portal at
or call the office at 859-341-5400.
Starting in the 2018-19 school year the state of Kentucky will require the Hepatitis A vaccine for all children above age 2 years and a booster dose of Meningococcal ACYW at age 16.  Additionally, the state requires vaccination of any home schooled child who participates in public or private school extracurricular activities.

May brings Staff Appreciation Week at Pediatric Associates. Our staff of Patient Service Representatives, medical assistants, nurses and administrative staff make our jobs possible.  Big thanks to our whole staff!
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.
Starting in May, we are adjusting practice locations for our providers to improve availability and access.  A particular provider may now be in a different location than what you were accustomed to on that day.  Transitions can always be a little confusing to start with, but we hope you will like our new set-up. And as always, please feel free to request your preferred provider and location. Thank you for understanding our efforts to serve you better!
Schools will only accept the official certificate with the Kentucky state seal on them. They will not accept a printed list. Follow these simple steps to print it at home. You can also save it to your desktop and email it to the school.
It’s official!  The efforts to create an awareness campaign for parents, caregivers, and anyone looking for an easy way to find programs before entering Kindergarten is LIVE!  If you have not visited thier website, you can check it out now at  Also, check out the attached image of the billboard currently sharing their message on 71/75 S near the cut in the hill.     
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. 
The growth of Hospital Medicine as a specialty at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital has caused us to reevaluate the most effective way for us to serve our patients both in and out of the hospital. Starting on October 16, 2017, our patients admitted to the General Pediatric Service will be followed by the Children’s Hospital Medicine service. As one of the very last practices to follow general pediatric patients at Children’s and as a practice who has always had many patients admitted to other services there, we expect very little change for our patients in the care they receive. And as always, we will be in close contact with Children’s to provide appropriate and timely follow-up. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about this new relationship.
Kerry McPhail is a parenting specialist who became part of our team through a grant from TriHealth, Cincinnati Children's Hospital and Beech Acres Parenting Center.  Her services are free for our families and she is here to help with sleep issues, school refusal, toilet training, anxiety, attention problems and lots of other parenting challenges.  You can reach Kerry by messaging her at or calling at 513-570-0941. 
The attached video details why we recommend the HPV vaccine for all boys and girls age 11 to 26 years. 
We now have in stock the Meningitis B vaccine. This is different from the 4 strain meningitis vaccine we give at age 11 and again at age 16. It is currently not required in Kentucky. There have been Meningitis B outbreaks at a few colleges in the U.S.

We are pleased to announce that Whitney Rich is now offering her services to our patients. 
Starting July 1, 2017 we are able to give vaccines to all our Medicaid patients at all office locations due to administrative changes in the VFC (vaccine for children) program. Unfortunately, uninsured patients as of July 1 2017 will have to get their vaccines at the health department.
