Flu Vaccine Recommendations for 2019 By AAP

The common flu strikes down many children during certain seasons, causing them to miss school and extracurricular activities. A flu vaccine can help prevent major strains of influenza viruses and keep your children as well other other children healthy and safe throughout the cold and flu season. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has issued a set of guidelines and recommendations for parents regarding flu vaccination. The AAP recommends that all children ages 6 months and older receive a flu shot in the 2018-2019 season to provide the optimal amount of protection against all strains of the influenza virus, which though generally harmless in older adults can be serious in young children and has resulted in a record number of pediatric deaths in the past year. Receiving an annual flu vaccine significantly cuts down on a child’s risk of contracting severe influenza and possibly death, the AAP policy statement notes in its recommendations for prevention and control of influenza in children, 2018-2019 published in September. If you’re looking for a “walk in clinic near me” in the Orlando area to administer the vaccine for your child or treat your child for the flu, call Central Florida Pediatric Urgent Care to set up an appointment today.

Know The Difference Between Urgent Care and Emergency Care

With such similar names, it can be easy to get confused about what exactly is an urgent care center and what is an emergency center. It is tricky to know where you should take your child following an illness or accident, but if you know where you should go, then it reduces panic and helps you pick the best possible health care route for your child. This is what every parent wants, so you should know whether you should look up “urgent care near me” or take your kid to emergency care. Each option has its place, and choosing the right one requires self-evaluation. Taking your child to the emergency room for minor illnesses or injuries can waste time for others in more severe conditions, not to mention leave your child in discomfort for longer because emergency rooms tend to have long lines and prioritize the most severe injuries and illnesses. On the other hand, extremely serious cases should be brought to the emergency room in order for them to be treated with all the available equipment there. If you are looking for an urgent care center for your child in the Orlando area, call Central Florida Pediatric Urgent Care to set up an appointment today!

Nighttime Reflux in Babies May Require After Care Diagnosis

Nighttime reflux is a very common ailment among infants that can cause pain for the child and distress for their caretakers. The child (along with the parents) can lose sleep and have trouble eating and keeping food down. However, because the symptoms are so vague, it can be very difficult to diagnose and may require a diagnosis from an after hours pediatrics center such as those from Central Florida Pediatric Urgent Care. Because nighttime reflux in babies occurs, like noted in its name, at night, you may need to go somewhere past regular office hours of your family pediatrician. If you are in the Orlando area and looking for an urgent care pediatrics office for your infant’s needs, call Central Florida Pediatric Urgent Care for an appointment today!
