Office News

Congratulations to Dr. Kovar who was reelected as the Chairman of Pediatrics at Edward Hospital!

The Flu shots are in at Kids First Pediatrics. We will be getting multiple shipments in over the next few months.

Flu shots are recommended for children over the age of 6 months. Please remember that for children under 9 years of age, they require 2 shots the first time they receive it.

Please remember that your child must have had a well visit within the last 2 years. If the well check was performed at another facility, we require a copy of that physical.

Finally, a legal guardian must be present for your child to receive the flu vaccine.

Please call 815-609-5437 to schedule your flu shot!  

Please read the following letter for important updates happening at Kids First Pediatrics.
