As of October 3, Seattle Children’s is providing influenza vaccinations to inpatients, outpatients and their household contacts. All inpatients, except bone marrow transplant patients, will be screened for eligibility. Outpatients will be offered the vaccination when they come to Seattle Children’s for clinic visits, and we will also offer the vaccination to Emergency Department (ED) and Urgent Care patients.
Seattle Children’s bills the insurance of patients and siblings under age 21 for their vaccinations, but provides vaccinations free of charge to adults age 21 years and older who live with a patient. All vaccinations given to children are documented in the Child Profile Immunization Registry.
The efforts of Seattle Children’s to vaccinate patients are in accordance with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to increase access to the vaccine in healthcare settings.
For questions about flu vaccinations at Seattle Children’s, email Matthew Kronman, MD, infectious diseases specialist.
