Convenient “Drive Through” Flu Vaccinations

Convenient “Drive Through” Flu Vaccinations

We are pleased to announce CONVENIENT “DRIVE THROUGH” FLU VACCINATIONS. If you and/or your child have not already received the flu vaccination, we highly encourage families to so as soon as possible as we are currently seeing the flu illness in our office. Simply call our office at 512-900-6055 to schedule a nurse visit appointment. The flu vaccine is for infants and children 6 months and older and we are still able to provide the flu vaccine to parents.

We know how stressful it can be to arrive to our office and walk in while your child becomes more and more anxious as they wait for their injection. We also know it can be difficult to exit your vehicle while gathering multiple young children through the front door, especially if you have a sleeping infant. We hope this process lessens your stress and the anxiety level of your child(ren).

If you are interested in a “Drive Through” Vaccination appointment, please indicate that you prefer to stay in your vehicle when you call to make a nurse visit appointment. When you arrive, please call to notify us when you are in the parking lot. One of our nurses will come to your vehicle to complete paperwork and then administer the vaccine in a safe environment. We ask that your child has shorts or a dress on to prevent needing to remove them from their car seat and any clothing covering their upper thigh.

If you are needing more information on the flu vaccine, please refer to the following website.
