Flu shots now available
Protect your family this flu season by scheduling your child's flu vaccine at Oak Creek Pediatrics.
It's important to get vaccinated as children can get seriously sick from the flu, and so can their family members. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that everyone age 6 months older should be vaccinated against the flu each year.
Schedule a flu shot for your child today by calling (414) 764-5726 or by using our online form. Please note that for the 2016-2017 flu season, only flu shots will be administered and the nasal flu vaccine will not be available.

Remember, it can take up to two weeks to develop full immunity, so schedule your appointment as soon as possible!
Connected with Children’s
Oak Creek Pediatrics carries with it the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin name. That means you can take comfort in knowing your child’s doctor is affiliated with one of the top children’s hospitals in the nation. Our pediatricians will connect you directly with the best available doctor if your child ever needs to see a specialist at the main hospital. And best of all, Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin specialists will keep your Oak Creek primary care doctor updated on any tests, diagnoses or treatments.
Visits are by appointment only. Please try to schedule well-child visits and checkups several weeks in advance. We understand sick children may need to be seen immediately and same day appointments are available.
