All vaccinations will still be given in a drive up shot station by one of our nurses. She will remain in protective gear (PPE) for the protection of patient and staff.   Sick children should not come get any vaccines at this time. 

At this time, we will continue to see well infants from birth thru 2 months of age in our office per your doctor’s schedule.   These visits will be highly isolated in a dedicated infant well room due to the critical time period and need for physical exam
