Our office is now offering all our patients ages 6 months to 4 years of age the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine and children ages 5 years and older the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. These vaccines have been shown to be very effective and safe. We have taken all recommended safety measures and are following all vaccine and needle safety protocols with the administration of these vaccines. Additionally, we set up a waiting area to monitor vaccinated children for at least 15-20 minutes afterward to ensure they do not have any adverse side effects. The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine consists of two dose series separated by 3-week intervals with a booster 5-months after. The Moderna COVID-19 vaccine is also a two-dose series separated by 4-week time interval.
For your convenience, we are only offering our vaccine clinic on Thursdays and Fridays, so that your child can be at home and comfortable for the weekend after they receive their vaccine should they have any of the routine vaccination side effects such as fever, tiredness, or headache lasting 1-2 days.
The best part is that you do NOT need to be a patient of Healthy Kids Care Pediatrics at Sunrise or change your pediatrician. You can continue to keep seeing your own pediatrician for all your child’s needs. We are here to support the community and their efforts to vaccinate our children in a safe, healthy, and effective environment. We are happy to provide this service to you without any obligation. All we will need is a copy of your photo ID and your insurance card. That is all. Simple. Please call Healthy Kids Care Pediatrics at Sunrise today for your appointment!
