Attention, Parents & Patients!
Just a reminder that if the HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) series is started by age 14, it is only a 2-dose series, 6 months apart. If the HPV series is started after the age of 14, it is a 3-dose series (0, 2, 6 months). Please click here for details regarding this vaccine.
Trumenba (Men B Vaccine) protects against meningococcal serotype G disease, which is often seen on college campuses. It is a 2-dose series, 6 months apart, for patients who are age 16-23 year old. We would like to start giving this vaccine to our patients in this age range when they come in for their flu vaccine. Some health insurance companies have not reliably notified us yet whether they will be paying for this vaccine, and if so, whether the reimbursement they offer will cover our costs. This vaccine will be ordered on an as needed basis. If any of our patients would like this vaccine, please sign and submit the attached wavier via fax or mail to our office one week prior to your appointment.
