Pediatricenter is now happily offering COVID vaccines to our patients as young as 6 months! We are offering the Pfizer vaccine, which is a 3 shot series over the course of approximately 3 months. Please call our office and choose the phone tree option to schedule a COVID vaccine, leave the requested information, and one of our office staff will call you back to schedule a date/time to get your child protected. We will also be offering this vaccine at all routine check-ups, as it is safe to give along with other routine immunizations.

As of 5/19/22 COVID-19 booster vaccines are now being recommended for children ages 5-11. This booster dose should be given at least 5 months after the last dose in the primary series (2nd dose for most children and 3rd dose for immunocompromised children). If you are interested in getting your child this vaccine, please call our office and we'll be happy to get it scheduled!
In part due to the formula recall in February, there has been a nationwide shortage of formula. Here is a helpful link in case you are having a hard time trying to find your baby's formula. It's never recommended to make your own formula or to water down formula, as these could be very harmful to your baby. Please call your home office to see if we have any samples of the formula you are using, and don't hesitate to call with any other questions regarding the shortage.
