Each year we offer influenza immunizations to everyone in order to provide the greatest protection to our patients and the general community. We offer this on a walk-in, first-come first-served basis any time the office is open during influenza season. To hear full details and the most current information about availability, please call 816-412-2900.
Whooping Cough Immunizations
Whooping cough (pertussis) is a serious threat to newborns and infants – often fatal. Infants are not fully protected until they have received all four initial doses of vaccine (generally around 15 months of age). Because of this, the best way to protect newborns and young infants is to ensure that everyone around them is immunized – a process known as “cocooning.” To assist with this, we offer the vaccine to everyone.
As with influenza immunization, we cannot bill insurance, but we offer the vaccine at the discount rate of $45 payable by cash, check, or credit card at the time of the immunization. To receive a Tdap vaccine from our office, you may walk in any time we are open.
