  • COVID booster is recommended for ages 5 and up, at least 5 months after the 2nd dose.

  • Typical side effects are mild and include fever, injection site pain, fatigue, headache, joint/muscle aches, and chills.

  • We will bill your insurance where appropriate, but the vaccine is available at no cost to you or your children.

If you have questions about the vaccine, consider speaking with one of our phone nurses or messaging your child's doctor over the portal.

FLU 
VACCINE

The 2021-2022 Influenza season has waned considerably.  We are no longer vaccinating for this flu season.  We anticipate that we will have vaccine for the 2022-2023 season available in sometime in late August or September.  Once the new vaccine is available, we will begin making appointments for vaccination. We recommend flu vaccine for all children aged 6 months and older.

PANDEMIC
PRECAUTIONS

We strive to meet the needs of our sick patients while maximizing the safety of our well patients.  As such, the following changes to our practice are in place:

  • Morning walk-in sick clinic is suspended until further notice.

  • Telemedicine visits are available for certain problems.

  • Remote registration and payment is available online.

  • Waiting in the car until ready to be seen will be optional for well patients and required for sick patients.

  • Physicians and staff will mask during visits, as well as glove and gown when appropriate.

  • We ask that all parents and older children continue to wear masks in the office, even when waiting in the exam room.

NEW
PATIENTS

At this time we are not accepting new patient transfers from in or out of town.  We want to provide our existing patients with the best care possible, and limiting our new patient to infants only will help us do that.  We will review this policy as time passes and make adjustments accordingly.

As noted, we will continue to accept newborns into our practice as we typically do.
