FluMist Is Available

If your child is 2 years or older and you would like her to get the FluMist this year, we have started scheduling appointments.  Please contact the Call Center at (804)282-4205 to schedule.   To date, we have received a very limited amount of injectable flu vaccines, and due to delays from the manufacturer we do not anticipate receiving a significant number in the next 4-6 weeks.  We will continue to update you as more information becomes available.

Is That Backpack Too Heavy?

Did you know that a child's backpack should not weigh more than 20% of his total body weight?  As the school year starts this fall, you may want to evaluate your child's book bag and discuss strategies to keep it lighter and wear it properly.  Please follow the link below to an article from the American Academy of Pediatrics for more information.
