We now offer flu shots! Walk-ins are available to patients who have been seen by Dr. Kao within a year. Otherwise, please call our office to schedule an appointment. Please note that we currently only carry flu vaccines that are approved for individuals ages 4 and up. We are still waiting to receive vaccines that are approved for children less than 4 years of age. Our website will be updated when this has changed.
Call 301-972-3709 to make your appointment.
Why Get A Flu Shot?
Every year, the flu virus changes from the year before. Your health care provider can help you keep up with the most up-to-date flu vaccine. The flu virus is easily spread by coming into contact with sick people, so it’s a great idea to immunize yourself to prevent the spread of this virus.

The flu vaccine might not be for everyone, but there are many who benefit from being immunized from this year’s flu:
- Anyone with a compromised immune system
- Elderly patients
- Infants and young children
- Pregnant women
- Frequent travelers
