Worrying about your children this fall will be commonplace, since flu season is almost upon us right in the middle of a pandemic.
Needles and doctors and pain, oh my! Such is the fear many children go through when it’s time to get their flu shot or some other important vaccination.
The flu is caused by several influenza viruses (which are not the same as the virus that causes COVID-19). Most flu outbreaks happen in late fall and winter.
Choosing a pediatrician for your family is one the most important decisions you will make in your child’s life. We will be involved with your family at some of your most joyful times as well as some of your most difficult times. We will see you when you’ve just had a baby, when your toddler conquers potty training, when you’ve been up all night with a sick child, and when your teen is preparing for college. We will be a part of your family’s lives.
At Meridian Pediatrics, we provide competent, compassionate, and supportive care to all families in the Treasure Valley and surrounding communities so that patients and parents feel confident in facing their children’s unique physical, mental, and emotional health concerns. We provide a full range of medical services for all children from newborn to age 21. In addition to sick and well-child care, we also offer lactation counseling, adolescent medical care, and ADD treatment.
At Meridian Pediatrics, we are monitoring the impact of COVID-19 closely. We will be adapting what we do with sick visits given the limitation of infection control in an office setting, including limited toys and books, but feel free to bring your own. If you have any questions or concerns, we have a nurse on the phone 24 hours a day. During clinic hours of 8 – 4:30 we have a triage nurse and for after hours, we have St. Lukes triage nurses to answer your questions.
For more information on how the virus spreads, how it’s treated, how to protect your child, and what to do if you or your child gets sick, please visit the CDC’s website here.
Effective 7/14/20, face masks are required at Meridian Pediatrics for children ages 2 and older.
