COVID 19 News and Updates

We now offer the COVID-19 vaccine for children 5-11 years of age

October 12th, 2022

The FDA has authorized the Pfizer bivalent COVID-19 vaccine for ages 5-11 yr as of today. What exactly does this mean? The current Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for 5-11 yrs is currently a monovalent (the orginal strain at the start of COVID) and is now for the adminstration of the primary series, or dose 1 & 2 only. The updated version or bivalent (the original strain and Omnicron strain) will now be used for the booster dose, or #3. We have already placed pre book order for the booster dose but do not have an estimated time that it may be delivered. Any current appointments for dose #3 of the Pfizer 5-11yr COVID vaccine, will need to be postponed at this time. You may receive a call to cancel any upcoming vaccine appointments until we receive the booster doses. Please do not hesitate to contact our office with any questions.
