For the protection of our patients, the majority of whom are not old enough to be vaccinated from COVID-19, we will continue to require masking while in our office even after July 1, 2021 when the state of emergency in Maryland expires.
For all those 12 years of age and older, we continue to offer the Pfizer vaccine.
On May 10, 2021, the "U.S. Food and Drug Administration expanded the emergency use authorization (EUA) for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine for the prevention of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) to include adolescents 12 through 15 years of age".
Great news! We have received the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine!!
We are able to administer to all patients 12 years and older, including parents!
