Flu Vaccine Update....

We've been waiting and waiting for the majority of our injectable flu vaccine to arrive and were notified last week that it will not arrive until mid-November.  This means that we will need to cancel more of our planned flu vaccine clinics - we won't be starting until November 22. We will have enough flu vaccine for everyone, just later than usual.

Congratulations Julia!

After years of studying, learning and hard work our very own Julia Giammona, LVN has earned some new letters after her name.  She is now a certified lactation consultant, and her nametag will read: Julia Giammona, LVN, IBCLC.

Julia has been offering a breastfeeding support group in our Novato office once a month for many months, and has been helping moms and babies with breastfeeding issues whenever she is in the office.

Flu Vaccine Update - Flumist Clinics

The delay in flu vaccine this year has been very frustrating for everyone.  We have been receiving small amounts of flu shots (injectable flu vaccine) and hope that in the next few weeks we will receive enough vaccine supply to do our scheduled flu vaccine clinics in November.  We have received our nasal flu vaccine (Flumist) and will continue to give that vaccine over the next few weeks.
