Welcome to Needham Pediatrics!

Back to School!
We hope you all enjoyed your summer, and we wish you the best for the transition back to school. If you need school physicals, please call early, so you can get your choice of appointment times.
Flu Vaccine Update (September 2, 2016):
Flu vaccine is available for the 2016-2017 winter season. Patients may be vaccinated if they are in the office for a regular well visit or for a urgent sick visit or scheduled follow-up (so long as they are well enough to receive the vaccine). You may also contact our office to schedule a visit to our flu clinic.
This year only the injected form of the flu vaccine will be available. Authorities from the Centers for Disease Control have determined that the nasal flu vaccine was not effective last season, and thus it cannot be recommended for this season. We are sorry for the inconvenience and hope that the nasal flu vaccine will be available again in the future.
We are proud to be members of the PPOC, and to be affiliated with Boston Children's Hospital and Newton-Wellesley Hospital.
