Fall / Winter News
Tips from American Academy of Pediatrics:
The flu shot has arrived. All children 6 months or older should get the flu shot. Please schedule an appointment to have your child vaccinated. The flu shot cannot cause the flu, it is safe, and it is the best way to protect your child and family from getting influenza this year.
The cold weather itself does not cause cold or flu, but the viruses that cause cold and flu are more common during winter months. Thus, in addition to getting the flu shot, encourage excellent hand hygiene and coughing / sneezing into the bend of an elbow to prevent the spread of germs.
Even Southern California can get quite cool. For older infants and young children, dress them in one more layer than an adult may wear in similar conditions. For infants, continue to avoid heavy blankets or loose bedding as this can be associated with suffocation. Instead, use sleep clothing such as one-piece sleepers or wearable blankets.
Happy Holidays from the Doctors of PVP
Pleasant Valley Pediatric Medical Group, located in Camarillo, has been the location since 1976 for all of Ventura Country to enjoy exceptional and compassionate care. We provide unparalleled access, combined with the highest level of expertise, in caring for newborns, infants, adolescents and young adults. Our five American Board of Pediatrics Certified Pediatricians, all resident trained at Childrens Hospital of Los Angeles, are committed to partnering with you in furnishing care as guided by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Your children will be cared for only by experienced Pediatricians and not by physician extenders. We pride ourselves in creating an atmosphere of trust, comfort, kindness and complete confidence.
Parents and patients usually develop a close relationship with one of our Pediatricians. For continuity sake we believe that it is important that an individual physician provide all well care. Eventually, however, due to our collegial atmosphere and extended hours you may see other Pediatricians.
