There has been a nationwide recall of Auvi-Q from Sanofi. Per their website “Sanofi US is voluntarily recalling all Auvi‑Q® (epinephrine injection, USP). The recall involves all Auvi‑Q currently on the market and includes both the 0.15 mg and 0.3 mg strengths for hospitals, retailers and consumers. This includes lot number 2299596 through 3037230, which expire March 2016 through December 2016. The products have been found to potentially have inaccurate dosage delivery.”
If you have an Auvi-Q prescription from us, please call our office and we will prescribe an alternative.
We are currently scheduling flu shot appointments, but only for children under 2 years of age. If you have a child under two years old, call our office and we can schedule a visit for your child to receive a flu shot. If your child is over the age of two, we recommend that you call your local pharmacy. Individual pharmacies and pharmacists have varying age restrictions for each flu vaccine preparation. As a result, please call your area pharmacy to verify whether they will vaccinate your child. Be aware that supplies of the FluMist are limited this year due to delays in production and shipment so many pharmacies are already out of the mist.
