2016-2017 Flu Vaccine Notification
Marcellus Family Medicine has been made aware from the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) that they are NOT recommending the flumist nasal vaccine for the upcoming 2016-2017 flu season. This decision was made based on vaccine efficacy data which suggests that the flu mist will not provide significant protection through the year against he flu. It is for this reason that MFM will only provide injectable flu vaccines this upcoming season to all patients over 6 months of age.
The NYS Vaccine for Children (VFC) Medicaid based program will make every effort to fill vaccine orders, as vaccine supplies allow.
