COVID 19 Office Procedure and Vaccines

COVID 19 Vaccine

The Southside Pediatrics team recommends the COVID 19 vaccination for children 6mo and older. We have been authorized to carry approved COVID 19 vaccine in the office (Pfizer) and will receive doses distributed through the health department. We will not always have vaccine supply for each age category, so please call first for availability and to have your child scheduled for a COVID 19 vaccine appointment.

At present, due to staffing, supply, and to be as safe as possible, we will not be offering the COVID 19 vaccine at any other visits and will not administer other vaccines during COVID 19 vaccine appointments.

COVID 19 Office Protocol

As your children’s health care providers, we are here for you during this COVID 19 pandemic. We are still seeing well and sick patients and we offer in office COVID 19 testing. There are some visit types that can be handled via telehealth video appointment and we do offer that service upon request.

The health and wellbeing of your family is our priority now as always, and so we have made changes to your experience when you visit. Please let us know if you need to discuss these rules given your specific situation.

  1.  We are all wearing masks for your safety, and require that you and any child 2yrs and older do so also. We can provide you with a mask if you do not have one.
  2. To avoid groups of people, sick and well, being in close proximity to each other, we are having those awaiting their appointment stay outside the building in their car or close by.  We ask that when you arrive you call to check in and a nurse will call you back when an
    exam room is ready.
