COVID VACCINES FOR 6-MONTH-OLDS TO 5-YEAR-OLDS

 

COVID VACCINES FOR 6-MONTH-OLDS TO 5-YEAR-OLDS

Dear Patients and Families,

We are expecting the FDA and CDC to approve the Covid vaccine for 6 month to 5 year olds this week. You can book for the vaccine now, in advance of the approval. We will have our initial Covid vaccine clinics for this age group on June 30 and on July 6th, in the afternoons. 
 
We are hoping to receive the Moderna vaccine. We expect that this vaccine will require a booster four weeks later. Our plan is to schedule the June 30th patients for July 28th for the booster, and to schedule the July 6th patients for August 3rd for the booster.
 
 ‌
How to schedule 
Please use the red Schedule Appointment button at the top of our webpage. The second service is the Covid vaccine for 6 months to 5 year olds. 

What about other dates?
Each time we open a vial, if it is not completely used in 6 hours, it has to be discarded. Therefore, for the moment, we will only be giving the vaccine to 6 month to 5 year olds on specific days. We plan to have additional days for the vaccine throughout the summer and fall. 

I am glad to share this good news!

Warmly,
Alexis Lieberman, MD
and all of us at Advocare Fairmount Pediatrics
