Dear Cary Peds Families: We are sending this message out to all of our families, which will be of special interest to those that are interested in the new COVID-19 booster vaccine that is now available. How this vaccine is being delivered has changed. It is no longer being supplied by the government, but is being purchased by pediatricians privately. Because it is a new product, and has new codes that go with it, insurers are not prepared to pay for it. This means we really can’t give it yet. And we are seeing increasing numbers of COVID illness in our community. We need your help. We would like to be able to give this vaccine to those who want it. While we are reaching out to insurance companies also, we need you to do the same. Please reach out to your human resources coordinator or the customer service number on the back of your card, and request that this vaccine be covered enough for your pediatrician to be able to stock the new COVID-19 booster. Until we are able to offer the vaccine, it is being offered at local pharmacies (ages 3 and up) and local health departments. Click the link below for additional locations. Find Covid Vaccine Thank you! Sincerely, Cary Pediatric Center

The summer months mean we are receiving college, sports and camp forms to complete for our patients! If your child has had a well check in the past 365 days, we are able to complete most forms (some require a well check in the past 6 months) based on that visit. Drop your form off at the office or upload a .pdf to the portal. If you need a well check, we have openings in each office – Please give us a call to schedule! We can complete your form at that visit. Please remember we ask for 7-10 business days to complete forms. Once the form is complete, we upload to the portal or you can pick up at the office 10 days after you drop it off. Due to the volume of forms received, we do not call when it is ready. Thank you!
