For the 2018-19 influenza season, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices
(ACIP) voted to include live attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV/FluMist) in the list of acceptable vaccines that providers may choose to administer. The American Academy of Pediatrics
(AAP) recently issued preliminary guidance for the 2018-19 season recommending that inactivated influenza vaccines (IIV/injectable vaccine) should be the primary choice
for all children.
We ask that patients arrive for their scheduled appointment time to minimize schedule disruptions and wait times.
Flu vaccinations are given by appointment only

Returning to Ohio for medical school, she volunteered in a local student-run free medical clinic and enjoyed several medical mission trips to Guatemala and Honduras. Empowering all children to reach their full potential is her passion and purpose. Dr. Darling and her husband had always planned to live in the Boston area and were thrilled when she had the opportunity to train at the Floating Hospital for Children. She lives locally with her husband, son, and two dogs and enjoys spending time with her family exploring New England and traveling internationally.

Yellow Fever Vaccine Shortage
Sanofi Pasteur, the manufacturer of the only yellow fever vaccine (YF-Vax) licensed in the United States, has announced that YF-Vax for civilian use is now totally unavailable from the manufacturer until mid-2018 because of delays in the production process. However, YF-VAX might be available at some clinics for several months, until remaining supplies at those sites are used up.
Travelers can find clinics with remaining doses of YF-VAX, by visiting the yellow fever vaccination clinic search page
