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!
