Well Visits during COVID-19 pandemic
We are still recommending children come in for their well visits during this pandemic, especially if they are due for any vaccinations. It is even more important now that our children remain up-to-date on vaccinations. The closing of schools and the implementation of social distancing has dramatically decreased infection rates of flu, strep and other illnesses we typically see this time of year. This phenomenon along with increased use of telehealth, has lead to an unprecedented decrease in the need for in-office ill visits. Therefore, we are now able to safely expand our well visits into the afternoon while maintaining our strict adherence to infection control measures and seeing the relatively few ill visits at the end of the day. We are still requiring patients to remain in their cars until they are ready to be seen.
Please call to schedule your child’s well visit appointment now as space for visits after the pandemic passes will surely fill quickly. As always, we thank you all for letting us be a part of your child’s healthcare team.
