BREAKING NEWS:  Pfizer vaccine and booster doses available at the PCC!

 

As of January 5, 2022, the CDC has recommended that adolescents age 12 to 17 years old receive a booster shot 5 months after their initial Pfizer-BioNTech vaccination series. 

As part of our ongoing commitment to provide the best possible medical care with the professionals you trust, we are offering COVID-19 vaccines to all our patients age 5 and up, including booster doses for patients age 12 and older.   Please email us at covidvax@thepediatriccarecenter.com if you would like to schedule your child for the Pfizer vaccine.   This vaccine is free of charge to you.  

Additionally, the CDC now recommends that moderately or severely immunocompromised 5–11-year-olds receive an additional primary dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine 28 days after their second shot. Parents of immunocompromised children should contact our office to determine if they are eligible for this third dose. 

 

We strongly recommend that ALL of our eligible patients receive the COVID-19 vaccine, and that all members in a household with children who are younger than 5 receive the vaccine to protect those not yet eligible.

You can schedule an appointment in any of three ways:  

  1. by sending an email to:  covidvax@thepediatriccarecenter.com  with the patient's name, date of birth and best email and phone number to contact you,

  2. by calling the main telephone number 301-564-5880 and leaving a message in Nurse message box (select 6) with the patient or family member’s name and date of birth, and email and phone number,

  3.  by logging into the Portal if you have a registered account, and requesting the appointment in the Request Appointment tab

 

Most appointments will be in the afternoon and after school.  We will try to offer options for appointment times to accommodate everyone over the next few weeks. Request an appointment now!

Let’s all get vaccinated so everyone can get back to “normal” in a safe way.
