COVID updates (updated 5/18/2022)

COVID-19 vaccine boosters have been approved by the FDA and CDC for children ages 5-11yrs, at least 5mos after their second shot.  At this time, we are *not* yet scheduling booster appointments for kids aged 5-11yrs.  We expect to receive our large shipment from the VDH between May 31-June 6, at which point we will begin to schedule clinics. We will update here and on our website as more information becomes available.

The US government has approved 8 more free at-home COVID tests per family. Access these by visiting www.covid.gov/tests.

Infant formula shortage (updated 5/18/2022)

We know that many of our families with young infants are struggling to find enough formula.

Please see the links below for some helpful information on navigating this situation. In addition, we are working with formula companies to increase the number of samples in our office. If you are currently out of formula, or will run out in the next 2 days, please contact us as we are prioritizing our current samples for these emergent situations.

Summer Schedule is Open (updated 4/28/2022)

Our schedule is now open for booking appointments for the entire summer through Friday, September 2.

Every year, the demand for August check-ups is extremely high. Although all our doctors and nurse practitioners work extra days in August to try and meet this high demand, we do expect these visits to fill quickly. If having your child’s yearly check-up in August is important to you, we recommend calling soon to schedule.

Before your child’s check-up, it is helpful to gather all forms needed for camps and the upcoming school year. Please fill out all the parent sections prior to your appointment. The doctor’s section of the form requires us to review all information the parent has filled out prior to signing.
