It’s flu shot time!

Fight the Flu

The CDC recommends ALL people ages 6 months and older get the flu shot every season. The flu shot not only protects you and your family but the weakest in our community (babies, elderly, sickly). So do your part! NYS only had a 40% vaccination rate last year, and the goal is 70% to significantly reduce flu hospitalizations and deaths during the season.

Call our office to set up an appointment (585-568-8330) for your child/children and we can vaccinate parents as well! We will have some evening flu clinics as listed below, but also can vaccinate during our normal business hours. These are not walk in appointments, so please call for the date and time you would like so we can keep things running smoothly.

We are hosting evening flu clinics on:
-Monday, 10/7
-Tuesday, 10/8
-Tuesday, 10/15
-Monday, 10/21
-Thursday 10/24

We are also trying to get kids in to get flu shots during their October school break – Friday 10/11 and Columbus Day, Monday 10/14 during normal business hours.

Thank you all!!

Introducing access to the Patient Portal!

Legacy Pediatrics is excited to start giving parents and patients electronic access to their information. Here, you will be able to electronically request routine appointments, ask questions, request refills, get copies of school forms, etc. If you have not set up your child’s patient portal yet, please call our office (585-568-8330) during normal business hours to be guided on how to do it. We also can give you an instructional letter in person at your next appointment. Please note – if your child is 16 years of age or older, we will ask that they set up their own patient portal. This is a great way to encourage teenagers to start taking ownership of their own health, and also a way to keep things confidential and protect our patient-provider relationship with your child.
