Infusion Center in Montgomery County

We have a number of sickle cell pediatric and adult patients in DC, Montgomery and Prince Georges County, MD. These patients  travel to Baltimore or other distances for their infusion services.

Not any more! Advanced Neighborhood Pediatrics (ANP) has now opened an infusion center for our patients to have the care they need without the hassle.

Yellow Fever Vaccine Status

This is a follow up to the total depletion of Yellow Fever Vaccines across the USA in 2017. See CDC latest update.

You should receive this vaccine at least 10 days before your trip.

We are happy to inform you that have Yellow Fever vaccines in both locations. Please contact us  before your travel date to schedule your visit.

 

Get Your Flu Shots Now

A report by the Centers for Disease Control shows influenza is now widespread in every state except Hawaii. Almost 75,000 cases have been reported so far. That doesn’t include patients who treat their symptoms at home and never seek medical care.

The CDC blames the flu for killing 30 children this season. Adult deaths are not tracked, but estimated to be higher than usual. The high flu activity is attributed to the prevalence of the H3N2 flu, this year’s most common form of flu. H3N2 is associated with more severe illness, especially among children and the elderly. Flu seasons during which H3 viruses are prevalent are usually worse and come with more hospitalizations and deaths.

Please stop by today to get your flu shot, if you haven’t done so. It is never too late!
