Flu Vaccine Clinics - Rescheduled!

We’re sorry to say that there are further delays in our flu vaccine shipment and we will not be having flu shot clinics until November.  The clinics that were planned for this weekend (September 27th) and through October have been cancelled.  We will be having walk-in clinics on Saturdays starting November 1st in both offices. We anticipate that we will have plenty of flu vaccine to vaccinate everyone before the flu season starts this winter.

Tamalpais Pediatrics at the Clo Cow 5K

Yesterday, a few of us dragged our families out of bed early on a Sunday morning to do the Clo Cow 5K race in Petaluma.  Julia, one of our excellent nurses from the Novato office, posted this as a facebook status update: "Clo Cow....DONE! So proud of my little Bird! She mostly walked, but didn't complain! She enjoyed it so much! (Even though she fell near the finish line, and I had to carry her the rest of the way...)

Cancelled - September 27 Flu Shot Clinic

We are sorry to say that we must cancel the first Flu Shot Clinic on September 27th.  Because of delays in our shipments of Flu Vaccine, we have a very limited supply of vaccine right now, and have already run out of certain types of Flu Vaccine.  We are hoping to receive more by the end of September, but because we cannot be sure to have enough for a Flu Shot Clinic, we are going to put off the first one for now.

Enterovirus D68 - The Latest Virus in the News

With all of our kids going back to school, we are seeing the predictable increase in colds and other viruses in the office and in our community.  Lately, there have been many news stories about Enterovirus D68, a virus that has been causing clusters of severe respiratory illness in Missouri and Illinois.  We have not seen these clusters of severe illness here in California, but doctors and health officials are watching out for this.
