Novant Health Harborside Pediatrics offers all routine childhood immunizations, along with the annual flu vaccine. Immunizations are one of the best ways to keep your child safe from illness. We recommend following the American Academy of Pediatrics' immunization guidelines (below), and we are more than happy to discuss your child's vaccine schedule with you.
We offer numbing spray to prepare your child's skin before the immunization. This will lessen the pain she feels from the injection.
While immunizations are necessary, we know that they can hurt. What can't hurt is a bit of distraction after the shot is over. When your child gets an immunization at Novant Health Harborside Pediatrics, they will have a chance to choose a small, age-appropriate prize from our Treasure Box. It might not take away the sting entirely, but can provide some needed entertainment for the ride home!
