  • For safety, staff at our clinic will not help restrain children experiencing anxiety during vaccination. If you think your child may need to be restrained, please contact your regular healthcare provider.
  • Our vaccine clinic will only administer vaccine in an arm. If your child needs the vaccine administered in a different muscle, please contact your regular healthcare provider.
