VACCINES ARE HERE FOR CHILDREN 6 MONTH-4 YEARS OF AGE!
We will be vaccinating children ages 6 months through 4 years of age in our offices during weekend and evening clinics. Clinics will be announced on our social media pages (Facebook and Instagram). As of right now, we will be giving the Moderna vaccine.
If your child receives the vaccine outside of our office, please bring the card to their next appointment so we can record it into their health record.
For information about the vaccine, vaccine safety, and getting the vaccine after Covid-19 infection, please refer to the CDC FAQ page.

COVID ISOLATION AND QUARANTINE PROTOCOLS
The CDC has a covid quarantine and isolation calculator that can help you determine your specific isolation and quarantine requirements.
Click HERE for the calculator.
IF YOU TEST POSITIVE FOR COVID-19 (this applies to vaccinated or non-vaccinated individuals): You must isolate for 5 days (day 0 is the day of the positive test) and monitor your symptoms. If you have no symptoms or have been fever free for 24 hours and your symptoms are resolving after 5 days, you may leave your house but must be masked around others through day 10.
IF YOU ARE EXPOSED: You must wear a mask around others for 10 days. The CDC recommends testing on Day 5 after exposure (day 0 is the last day of exposure). You must continue to wear a mask through day 10 even if your test is negative.
If you develop symptoms, test immediately and isolate if even testing is negative.
If a person is continuously exposed to a person who tested positive and cannot be isolated from that person, the exposed person's quarantine does NOT start until the COVID-19 positive person completes their 10-day isolation period.
General COVID-19 info
Per the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, patients and family members over the age of 2 must wear masks in our office at all times. This applies to vaccinated patients and families.
