The Silver Spring office is also designated by the State of Maryland as a travel vaccine center.
“Fall is now here and that also means the arrival of flu season,” cautions pediatrician Giovanni Impeduglia, who has been named Top Doctor by Washingtonian Magazine in 2015 and 2016. “Don’t delay in scheduling a flu shot for your family. Please remember that the American Academy of Pediatrics (APP) recommends the flu vaccine for all eligible children aged six months and up.”
“The annual flu vaccine significantly reduces a child's risk of severe influenza and death,” quotes the APP. “During the 2016-17 season, more than 100 U.S. children died of the flu, and thousands more were hospitalized for severe illness or complications from the virus. Historically, more than 80 percent of children who died of influenza were not vaccinated.” Those interested can see the APP’s information on flu vaccines for additional details.
