Seattle Children’s Providing Influenza Vaccinations to Patients

Seattle Children’s is providing influenza vaccinations to inpatients and outpatients. Patients will be screened for eligibility. Seattle Children’s will also offer the vaccination to the Emergency Department and Urgent Care patients. All vaccinations given to patients are documented in the Child Profile Immunization Registry.

Seattle Children’s efforts to vaccinate patients are in accordance with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to increase access to the vaccine in healthcare settings.

For questions about flu vaccinations at Children’s, email Dr. Matthew Kronman, infectious diseases specialist.

Changes to PEARL Clinic Referrals

The Seattle Children’s Program to Enhance Attention, Regulation and Learning (PEARL) for ADHD is now accepting limited patients. Our demand continues to exceed supply and as our community partners we want to inform you of changes to our referral process.

Moving forward, all referrals to the PEARL clinic need to include a Vanderbilt Assessment completed within the last 3 months by both the patient’s caregiver and teacher along with the top three reasons for referral. Our goal is to see your patients within 4 months of referral to provide specialized evaluation and treatment services.
