We are now scheduling appointments for our flu vaccine clinics!
We are receiving some small shipments of flu vaccine, so we are currently scheduling appointments for our flu vaccine clinics. Please call the office to schedule an appointment!
For the 2016 – 2017 flu vaccine season, there has been an official recommendation to NOT administer the Nasal Flu Vaccine. Due to this, our office will only be stocking injectable flu vaccine.

Two New Online Tools
We are very excited to announce two new online tools to enhance the services we provide and your experience with our practice.
1.) Patient Portal - this gives you access to retrieve immunization records, vitals and school/camp forms completed by your doctor through a secure website.
2.) CHADIS – an online system that allows you to log-in and complete developmental and health screening questionnaires at home before your visit.
Meningococcal Infection Confirmed in Three Santa Clara University Students
In early 2016, there were three confirmed cases of Meningococcal infection, serogroup B, at Santa Clara University. The health department is working with the University to vaccinate students at Santa Clara University.
In 2014 and 2015, there were two vaccines licensed to protect against infection with this strain of Meningococcal serogroup B. Because this vaccine was just recently licensed, many people are not vaccinated with this immunization. Golden Gate Pediatrics currently has the Bexsero Meningitis B vaccine available. If you are interested in receiving this vaccine, please call our office.
Just a reminder the best way to avoid the spread of illnesses like Meningitis is to not share food or drinks with others.
