Flu Clinic Sign-ups


At East Bay Pediatrics, we highly recommend all of our patients 6 months and older receive the influenza vaccine annually.

FLU INFO

We want to make sure our patients are well informed about the influenza virus and how to protect your children from it.  Below are some links about the flu virus and the vaccine:

Healthy Children: The Flu

CDC Flu Vaccine Information Statement (VIS)

FLU CLINICS

We offer two ways for our patients to receive the flu vaccine: in office appointments and outdoor drive through appointments. We are confident that we will be able to provide flu vaccines for all of our patients. 

If this is your child’s first flu vaccine, please schedule an in office appointment for them. 

If your child is less than 9 years old and they have received zero or only 1 prior flu vaccine in their life, they will need two doses 4 weeks apart this flu season. Please call our office to book the first vaccine. The second vaccine can take place in one of our clinics 4 or more weeks later. 

As part of our effort to maintain safety and physical distancing for our patients, we are offering flu vaccines by appointment only.

We will have outdoor drive-thru clinics at our large side parking lot on the corner of Prince’s Hill Avenue and Anoka Avenue. You will see well-marked entrance/exit signs at the lot to drive in a circle. 

We ask that parents keep their children in the car / in their carseat for the vaccine. We may ask you to quickly help hold the child if necessary. All children less than 2 years should wear shorts and older than 2 years should be in a short sleeve shirt. To keep our clinic flow moving, if your child is having a difficult time at the walk up or drive up clinic, you may be asked to reschedule to an in-office visit. Please schedule separate appointments for each of your children.

Please note – drive-thru clinics are not for needle-phobic patients and those patients will likely do better with an in-office appointment. 


REMINDERS

-All patients under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

-We will NOT be able to accommodate any patients without appointments. This includes unscheduled siblings.

-There is no wait time necessary between receiving the COVID-19 vaccine and the flu vaccine.

-Unfortunately we do not have enough supply to vaccinate parents with their children. We have been trying to offer this for our families but thus far it is not possible. 

-Is your child allergic to eggs? Most children with an egg allergy are fine to receive the flu vaccine. If you have questions or concerns about this, please talk to your child’s doctor before getting the flu vaccine.

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding. Please do not be discouraged if you are unable to book a slot this week - we will continue having frequent clinics and will ensure that all patients who request a flu vaccine will receive one.

If your child receives a flu shot elsewhere, please send us a message so that we can update their EMR to reflect that the vaccine was completed.

Stay safe and healthy!

  • "Love East Bay Pediatrics of Barrington! My son is a wrestler and had a thumb injury right before a big match mid-season. I called at 4:55 on a Friday and they said come on in!! They stayed open and waited for my son! He was sent for an x-Ray that night and we got a call the next morning thankfully that it was fine just needed to rest for a couple of days! Dr. Feretti told us where to go for a brace and even called over to make sure the medical supply had it in stock!! My son was back in business within a few days and was able to wrestle his match!! I can't say enough good things!!! They are the kind of doctors that truly care about their patients! They just hired a new doctor who's super bubbly and friendly, Dr. Raufi. She's actually the daughter of one of the other doctors in the practice. Love seeing a mother-daughter team!! They have 3 docs, Dr. Raufi (she's the newest), Dr. Grenander (her mom), and Dr. Ferretti (male doc) They are all amazing!!!"

  • "My three children have been patients at East Bay pediatric for over 14 years now. The quality care that my children have received is bar none. From the common cold to having a child with epilepsy, all have always been handled with the utmost care and concern. I am always able to get in a same-day sick visit, as a mother of three, I really appreciate that. I can safely say that this is a great practice to bring your child to."

  • "The comfort of this office is exceptional. From Dr. G to Dr. Ferretti, they are always supportive to moms and babies. They are open and direct while offering their time for advice and comfort. I will never take my children elsewhere."

  • "As a new mom and new to Rhode Island, I was nervous about finding the perfect care for my little one. After searching for practices that were accepting new patients, I finally came across East Bay Pediatrics. The staff here are super friendly and welcoming. They are very accommodating and scheduling an appointment is easy. The doctors here are very knowledgeable and I feel like my little ones are in good hands. I highly recommend!"

  • "Dr. Grenander (and Dr. Dennison before retiring) are fantastic pediatricians, both down-to-earth and practical which I appreciate. Appointments never feel rushed, ancillary staff there is great too."
