Flu Vaccine for the 2016-2017 Season
(9.16.16) Flu vaccine for infants 6 months to 3 years have come in. (9.8.16) Flu vaccines for 3 years and older have arrived. We will add patients as the schedule will permit until we are out of vaccine for this season. (6.22.16) I will not provide Nasal Flu vaccine for season 2016-2017 because Centers for Disease Control testing showed it would not be very effective (3%). I will provide injectable form for 6 months and older and am trying to order additonal doses for my patients. If you believe your child has respiratory flu check following link for options or call during office hours if you have questions. See Influenza
Dr. Simonian on TV
When I started my practice in the early years I was easily accessible to the media. This gave me the opportunity to share important topics related to children. I concentrated on safety issues but was also called upon to speak on the health issue of the day. Click here [ Videos ]

Recommended Additional Website for more children's information is my professional association's www.healthychildren.org
There are many topics covered in the navigation bar. You can either Click through topics and find a subject or just do a Search. You will find information related to the word(s) you use.
This Website will help you meet the common needs of newborn babies and older children and adolescents. It provides helpful hints on how to keep your child healthy and happy. I hope it will be a good resource for you in those times when questions about your child arise.
Your child is a unique individual from the day he or she is born. Adapt these instructions to your child. Do not depend on friends and relatives. I will be happy to answer your questions while you are in the hospital or later by phone and during your visits to my office. Through the year, I will give you detailed instructions for your child.

Dr. Simonian adds a Facebook site
Facebook has become so popular that a large portion of Americans use it as their primary news source. I decided I could add some topics there that were timely issues that I was seeing in the office. I will link to various sources including the articles on my website.
Dr. Simonian joins Twitter.
We wanted to add a helpful service to your family using Twitter by updating you quickly about changes in vaccine availability, notifications from health advisory groups like the CDC, American Academy of Pediatrics and local health department. But, please don't use Twitter to contact me. This is only for announcements. Please call the office with your patient questions. You can follow me: @SimonianMd
New information coming from the American Academy of Pediatrics advised that ages from 9 to 15 years can receive one less dose of HPV vaccine
