COVID-19 Vaccine:

Essex Pediatrics has received the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine from the Vermont Department of Health. We will update this page with vaccine related changes as needed.

We encourage all people to receive vaccination against COVID-19 when eligible to do so, especially now that other variants of the virus are becoming more prevalent. Currently, eligible people may get it from participating pharmacies or in our office (879-6556) during scheduled vaccine clinics. All available vaccines are effective, and we recommend accepting any vaccine offered in the most timely manner.
