Flu shots will be given each fall based on the availability of vaccine. High risk children and adults will be given priority. The CDC has approved routine flu vaccination for children, ages 6 months – 18 years and all adults, especially those with chronic illnesses such as asthma, prematurity, heart disease or diabetes. Flu vaccine is usually received in the office during September through October. Please call our office in late August and early September to inquire about flu shot clinic plans and dates planned for the current year. We will also be posting this information on our website. The key benefits of getting the vaccine are the prevention of the flu.
An on-call pediatrician and internal medicine doctors are available 24 hours a day, every day of the year, at 303-438-5522.
After hours, telephone calls will be answered initially by our answering service and then forwarded to The Children’s Hospital Colorado after hours pediatric nursing staff for triage and advice or onto one of our doctors. Our physician on call will then be paged with any calls needing or requesting a doctor’s immediate attention. After hour calls are shared between our pediatric doctors at Broomfield Pediatrics. If your after hours call has not been returned by the nurses at Children’s Hospital Colorado or the doctor on-call within 60 minutes, please call our answering service back to check on the status of your call.
