Alzein Pediatrics is happy to announce that influenza vaccinations have arrived in our offices. We can make an appointment to give your whole family the flu shot at your appointment.
Each year, the flu shot is reformulated to protect against the viruses most likely to spread in the current season. Last year’s flu shot no longer protects your child or you. You must get a flu shot each fall to be protected.
Please call 708-424-7600 or use your healow app to make an appointment for a vaccination.
Getting your entire family protected against the flu is important every year, but it’s absolutely vital this year. The CDC says that COVID-19 will complicate flu transmission, symptoms, response time, treatments, and recovery in ways we cannot begin to predict. The flu will weaken immune systems, making it more likely your child will contract COVID-19. Contracting COVID-19 and the flu at the same time is possible and researchers are not sure what long-term health challenges will create for patients of all ages.

The CDC urges everyone who is medically able, including children over the age of 6 months, to be vaccinated against the flu.
The flu shot is here and Alzein Pediatrics stands ready to protect your entire family against this potentially life-threatening respiratory illness, most especially during COVID-19. Get your family protected immediately by making an appointment or by attending one of our drive-thru flu shot clinics.
