Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a common virus that can cause severe respiratory infections, particularly in young children and older adults. Historically, RSV vaccines were recommended only during the RSV season. However, recent updates from health authorities have changed the landscape of RSV vaccination.

Our providers at Palos Verdes Medical Group, along with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), now recommend annual RSV vaccinations for individuals who meet the age criteria, regardless of the season. This shift aims to enhance protection against RSV and reduce the risk of severe illness associated with the virus.

At Palos Verdes Medical Group, we are pleased to announce that we currently offer the adult RSV vaccine in our office. We encourage eligible individuals to take advantage of this opportunity to safeguard their health against RSV.

If you are pregnant or would like to vaccinate your child against RSV, we advise you to contact your pharmacy to ensure they have the correct RSV in stock.

For the most up-to-date information on RSV vaccine recommendations and other health-related updates, please visit the CDC website.

Protect yourself and your loved ones from the threat of RSV by staying proactive and getting vaccinated annually. Your health matters, and we are here to support you every step of the way.
