2019 Influenza Vaccine

We currently have a GOOD supply of influenza vaccine so please call (417) 882-1600 to schedule a nurse visit for your children.

Influenza vaccine to protect against influenza infection is now available.  This vaccine consistently helps prevent infection and complications from infection every year.  We strongly recommend this vaccine for most children.  This season’s flu vaccine is simpler than in past years with just one type for all children age 6 months and older.  Any child 6 months to 9 years old receiving flu vaccine for the first time will need two doses a month apart.

We elected not to offer nasal flu vaccine this year since the data was still incomplete at the time we needed to order.  We hope to have more consensus on this version of the vaccine from the experts for next season.
