RSV and Your Baby

Are you worried about RSV (respiratory syncytial virus) causing a potentially severe illness in your infant under age 8 months or your at-risk toddler under age 20 months?  We are, too!  Are you interested in learning about some ways to minimize or possibly avoid severe RSV infections?  If so, please click on the links below for more information.

Beyfortus (nirsevimab), the antibody injection available for infants and toddlers has been in very short supply.  We have a limited number of doses available at this time for babies who have private insurance and weigh at least 11 lbs.  We have not been able to order the doses yet for our infants under a weight of 11 lbs.  We will let you know when the doses for the smaller babies and children receiving VFC vaccines are available. 

Important note: if pregnant women receive the RSV vaccine at least two weeks before delivery (please refer to the links below), most of their newborns will not need the Beyfortus injection!

Please contact us today if you are interested in scheduling an appointment for your baby’s Beyfortus injection or would like to receive it with their regular vaccines!

Flu Vaccines: Call Today to Schedule your Appointment

Your providers at TLC Pediatrics, PLLC recommend that all children 6 months and older get an annual flu vaccine. If you or your child have not had a flu vaccine since August 2023, we recommend getting it as soon as possible. Making sure your child is up to date on vaccinations is very important.

A flu shot is quick, easy and covered by most insurances. Call TLC Pediatrics at 501-327-2444 to schedule your child’s flu vaccine today!

We are also providing Flu vaccines for parents and caretakers under the age of 65 years. If you would like to receive your vaccine with your child, please let the receptionist know when scheduling so we can confirm your eligibility to receive a flu vaccine at our clinic at no cost to you.

Vaccination is the best protection!

The flu vaccine is safe and effective. It reduces the risk of your child catching the flu and their risk of suffering serious complications. Children younger than 5 years and those with certain chronic conditions are at increased risk for complications and hospitalizations due to the flu.

Clearing up misconceptions:

1.  The flu shot doesn’t give your child the flu. Like most vaccines, the flu shot can cause fever, achiness, and soreness at the injection site.

2.  The flu is not the same as a cold. The flu can cause serious issues, like pneumonia, difficulty breathing and/or dehydration. In rare cases, the flu can be deadly.

Children 6 months to 8 years old receiving a flu vaccine for the first time will need two doses to be considered fully vaccinated. Each shot is given 4 weeks apart.

Flu experts recommend getting flu vaccines as early as possible, even in August. The vaccine gives adequate protection even if the flu arrives a few months later.

Schedule your child’s flu vaccine today.

Stay safe and healthy!
