COVID-19 WARNING: IF ANYONE IN YOUR HOUSEHOLD IS COVID-19 POSITIVE OR HAD A CLOSE CONTACT EXPOSURE TO SOMEONE WITH COVID-19 WITHIN 14 DAYS OF YOUR APPOINTMENT, YOU CANNOT ATTEND THE CLINIC!


DEAR PARENTS AND PATIENTS: Our Pediatric Covid19 Pfizer clinics are by appointment only. We will hold a limited number of clinics this season, as our focus must be on patient care. However, we strongly encourage everyone to get vaccinated. If you cannot attend one of our clinics, please make it a priority to get vaccinated at one of the many facilities that offers the age appropriate Covid19 vaccine. If your child's school offers the Covid19 vaccine, please take advantage of that benefit.

SAFETY: Please be patient during the clinic. We have tried to factor the time for every issue; however we will always prioritize safety and proper medical technique over speed. All of the RULES below are very important to our workflow and your safety. Please read carefully:


Pfizer pediatric Covid19 clinic rules (please come prepared):


1. The clinic structure does not allow time for questions or concerns regarding the Covid19 vaccine, however we are happy to address these concerns prior to your appointment. Please send a portal message or call the office.


2. Please do not attend the clinic if the patient is sick.


2. Everyone entering the office, ages 2 years and older, MUST wear a mask over the nose and mouth.


3. The vaccine site must be easily accessible, please have your child wear clothing with loose, short sleeves.


4. You will need to present a COMPLETED vaccination screening form for each patient receiving a vaccine. Please use the link to print the form OR pick one up at the office (we will have a baggie with blank forms by door 207). This clinic is time-sensitive, we may not be able to vaccinate your child if your forms are not ready.


5. Please read the vaccination fact sheet prior to the clinic. Again, if you have any questions or concerns regarding the vaccine, please call the office, send a portal message or attend the ZOOM meeting as shown in line 1.


6. Please arrive at your appointment time and park in one of the orange cone numbered parking spots along the front of our office. Please DO NOT park in a cone spot until your appointment time. A staff member will come to your vehicle to collect the completed forms, take your child's temperature and escort the parent and child(ren) receiving the vaccine into an exam room. If possible, please avoid bringing siblings that are not getting vaccinated.


7. Parents/Guardians should be prepared to help hold your child still while the vaccine is administered. All vaccine recipients must be monitored for 15 minutes (in your vehicle) after receiving the vaccine. You will be given instructions to take to your car, if your child experiences any of the symptoms listed (very rare), immediately signal one of the assigned monitors or honk your horn until a medical staff member arrives.


8. If your child has a history of anaphylaxis, please remember to bring an EpiPen.





IMPORTANT REMINDER: PLEASE SCHEDULE YOUR CHILDREN’S WELL CHECKS, SPORT PHYSICALS, AND COLLEGE PHYSICALS to avoid any interruption in their vaccine schedule or difficulties registering for school sports or college entrance. The use of telemedicine during the pandemic made it possible to safely treat patients, and we may use it for some sick visits or medication checks if you are on vacation or away at college, but the best medical care comes from seeing our patients in person. Children change and develop so quickly. Annual check-ups give us the best opportunity to monitor those changes and catch any inconsistencies both mentally and physically.


SCHOOL/CAMP FORMS INFO: Please see our temporary forms policy to see how our office will be handling school/camp/sports forms this summer.
