JMJ Medical Guidelines
Routine influenza vaccination is recommended for all persons aged 6 months and older.
As in previous recommendations, all children aged 6 months through 8 years who receive a seasonal influenza vaccine for the first time should receive 2 doses, 1 month apart.
For those patients with severe egg allergies, flu vaccines must be obtained through the allergy department.
For those patients who have mild egg allergies AND have had flu vaccine in the past without a reaction, flu vaccines must be scheduled in the Pediatric Department during the regular business hours, Monday through Friday.
According to our physicians, you may receive the influenza vaccine if you have an upper respiratory illness as long as you do not have a high fever. Please consult your physician if you have questions.
All pediatric flu vaccines are preservative-free.
