On Tuesday, Sept. 12, the CDC recommended an updated COVID-19 vaccine. This updated vaccine will provide protection against serious illness from most of the strains that are now circulating. Reach out to your child’s primary care provider, pharmacy, or local health department to get your child vaccinated. This vaccine should be available within the next few weeks.
Important note: If your child is scheduled for an outpatient visit and they or someone in your household is testing positive with COVID-19, please DO NOT CANCEL YOUR APPOINTMENT. Instead, contact your child’s clinic to determine if the appointment can me moved to telehealth. If the clinic determines you should come in for your appointment, you will be asked to mask for the entirety of the visit.
