Covid Vaccine Update

The FDA is meeting today to consider giving Emergency Use Authorization for children ages 5-11 years to receive the Pfizer Covid vaccine! If the FDA approves it, the next step is approval from ACIP (Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices) who are scheduled to meet Tuesday, 11/2/21. The final step will be recommendation from the CDC. We cannot administer Covid 19 vaccine to our school aged patients until all three steps are complete - This means late next week is the earliest this could happen, provided we have the vaccine in the offices. However - We are closer than we have been! Thank you for your continued patience & if you are interested in the vaccine, use the Sign-Up Genius to let us know!

Covid Vaccine for School Age Children is Coming!

Cary/Fuquay/Apex Pediatrics is one of the first Pediatric practices in the state that will receive Covid vaccine for children ages 5 - 11. Many of you have questions - So do we!
What we know:
1. We are getting a small amount of vaccine initially. These vaccines will be offered to immunosuppressed & high risk patients first. This means most of our patients will not get the vaccine with the first shipment to our offices.
2. We will offer the vaccine at your child's well exam if we have it available.
3. We hope to have drive-thru clinics at one or more of our offices as staffing allows. Like the rest of the nation, our offices are experiencing staffing issues. You may have to go to a different office for the covid vaccine.
4. We do not have a date the vaccine will be in the office. As soon as we have vaccine, we will post it on the website, on our social media accounts & send a newsletter.
5. We are not in control when the vaccine will arrive. This is being handled by DHHS.
6. We are thrilled that you are excited about your child receiving this important vaccine.
7. We are thankful to be able to offer it to you. We believe in the safety of the vaccine and the science behind it.

That is all we know today. Like most thing related to Covid, there will be changes, updates, & new information coming daily. We will update you as soon we have new information!
