Flu Shot/Children Vaccine

Quality healthcare and regular visits to experienced children’s doctors from the earliest years of your child are essential to strengthen their developing biological systems and enable the children to thrive and grow up as strong and healthy adults. Early experiences and strong healthcare foundations are the key to lifelong health for children and can prevent most common diseases and disorders as they grow older.

Protecting and improving the health of your children depends a great deal on the availability of skilled and trained pediatricians, children’s doctors, and quality preventive care such as flu testing and vaccines. Another key aspect of ensuring the health of your little ones is giving them proper nutrition, quick treatments in case of illnesses and injuries, and providing them with a physically and emotionally stable environment.

At Washington Medical Clinic, LLC, we offer exceptional care for children and adolescents with the help of our team of highly skilled and qualified pediatricians and children’s doctors in Silver Spring, MD. Our children’s healthcare encompasses a wide range of services to provide comprehensive care to our young patients to ensure their emotional and physical well-being while providing quality care and treatments as well as preventive care. Our kids’ doctors engage with young children to assess their emotional well-being and conduct thorough screening to diagnose any underlying conditions or health issues that are preventing them from good health and development.

Flu Shots, Flu Testing, and Childhood Vaccinations

The human body is equipped with an amazing defense system that protects against common bacteria and viruses called the immune system. Vaccines are used to introduce a weakened strain of the virus to trigger the immune system to produce antibodies to fight off the infection. Once the immune system creates antibodies for a particular virus, it becomes stronger and is able to recognize the virus if it is introduced it the body in the future, and the person has a better chance of fighting it off and recovering rapidly.

Routine childhood vaccinations play an important role in keeping your children safe from several potentially deadly infectious diseases. Washington Medical Clinic, LLC, offers a range of vaccination programs for preventable illnesses such as:

  • Measles
  • Mumps
  • Chickenpox
  • Whooping cough
  • Congenital rubella syndrome
  • Rotavirus diarrhea
  • Hepatitis (A and B)
  • Diphtheria
  • Tetanus
  • Polio
  • Bacterial meningitis

Routine vaccinations aren’t just recommended for young children. Children who are in middle school and even high school might require booster shots and additional vaccinations such as flu shots to maintain the effectiveness of the original vaccines and strengthen their immune system.

We also offer flu shots for children in Silver Spring to lessen the risk of your child getting sick with influenza. Our children’s doctors provide routine flu testing for our young patients along with routine flu shots to protect your child and the people around them from influenza and the resulting health and respiratory issues.
