Schools in Hawaii will offer the “Stop Flu at School Program” sometime in late January, 2017. However, if your child has not received the flu vaccine, we recommend getting it as soon as possible. In general, it takes two weeks for the flu shot to start offering protection against the flu and the flu season is well upon us.

Vaccination is the best means to prevent influenza infection. (You cannot get the flu from the flu shot.) The flu season in Hawaii peaks from November through May.

There is no need to wait – families should bring children over 3 years old in to the nearest Urgent Care Hawaii clinic now to get their flu vaccines. For children under 3 years old, please call your pediatrician. Please call if you have any questions. 808.456.CARE (2273)
