We FINALLY have our large shipment of vaccine & are ready to see you! Call the office today to schedule an appointment. If you have an upcoming well child check, you will be able to get the vaccine at that visit & will not need an additional visit. Thank you for your patience as we waited! We will see you soon in the office!
Whew! We have been able to vaccine about 900 patients so far. We expect our Wave 3 vaccine doses THIS WEEK. When we get the notification that the vaccine has shipped, we will send an email/text to all patients ages 5-11, & we will update our website as well as our social media accounts. We will NOT open any clinics until we know the vaccine is on the way! We will have after hours appointments, appointments during the day & Saturday appointments so we can vaccinate every patient who wants it. We look forward to seeing you soon!
We are excited & can’t hide it! We only have ONE MORE STEP before we can start administering the vaccine so many of you are waiting for! When Dr. Rochelle Walensky, Director of the CDC gives the final approval – and it could come as soon as tonight! – we will be ready to go! Some answers to questions you have asked:
1. We will reach out to you via email, portal messages, text, &/or phone calls. Remember, we received a small amount of vaccine this morning, & will be reaching out to our high risk patients first. Asthma? On the list. Diabetes? On the list. Cystic fibrosis? On the list, & this is a small sample of possible diagnoses.
2. We will give vaccines at each office. We will have various times & days of the week for clinics & it will be offered at your well-child appointment once we have an ample supply.
3. Expect to wait 15 minutes after your vaccine – 30 minutes if you have a history of allergic reactions. Our exceptional nurses will let you know how long to wait.
4. If we have vaccine that might go unused at the end of a day, we will use the waiting-list to reach out to patients.
5. We appreciate your continued patience. When we say to you that all of our teams are excited to vaccinate each & every patient who wants it, we mean it!
We are hopeful this will be exactly what we need to keep each patient safe, & work towards making this pandemic a memory.
Keep an eye on our website, our FB, IG & your emails!

Many of you have seen (and called about!) that the FDA approved the Covid 19 vaccine for children ages 5 – 11y. We are waiting on TWO MORE approvals from the ACIP (Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices) & the CDC. The ACIP is meeting tomorrow & will hopefully approve the vaccine. Once we get the FINAL word from the CDC, & have the vaccine in the office, we will begin scheduling appointments. We believe we will have an answer & vaccine by the end of the week! We are thrilled that so many of you are excited – as of this morning, we have over 1100 individual families on our Sign-Up genius! Please continue to check our website often, as well as on our FaceBook & IG pages. Please do not call the office for updates – Our website is where you will find the most up to date information. It is our goal for everyone who wants the vaccine for their school aged children to get it as quickly as possible at one of our offices. We are ready & just waiting on the 2 approvals & vaccine!
