COVID-19 and RSV Vaccines
Also: RSV Immunization
The office does have a small supply of Pfizer vaccine for the following age groups. (6 months thru 4 years; 5-11 years and 12-18 years) We will not be getting Moderna vaccine.
We’ve had many inquiries as to whether a child can receive the vaccine at an upcoming appointment scheduled with their provider or in a flu clinic. If we have the supply we are happy to vaccinate. We are not able to set aside any doses.
We are still holding clinics and can preschedule Covid vaccines on a weekly basis. We originally hoped to send out a broadcast text message once we had enough vaccine to accommodate all of our eligible patients. Because of the supply issue, we don’t foresee that happening in the near future.
If you do wish to schedule in a clinic, our online scheduling as stopped for this year, please call the office at 879-6556.
RSV, Respiratory Syncytial Virus, is a common virus that affects the lungs. RSV season starts in the fall and peaks in the winter in most regions of the U.S. Many have asked about the new Nirsevimab (Beyfortus) vaccine/antibody to protect babies from severe RSV. There is limited availability of this vaccine for the 2023-24 RSV season. Therefore certain recommendations have been made by the CDC and certain criteria must be followed in order for us to administer this. Your provider will be happy to discuss this at your next visit.
We appreciate your patience with all of this.
