COVID-19 Vaccine

1.8.2021

As has been widely published the COVID-19 vaccine has been in use since mid-December.  There are established CDC guidelines that are focused on distibuting the vaccine in a systematic manner so that the those with the highest risk get the vaccine first.  These guidelines allow for everyone in the population 16 years and older to eventually get the vaccine.  According to many sources this should be accomplished by late Spring to early Summer.

Wildwood Pediatrics encourages every one of our patients to get the vaccine when it becomes available to you.  If you have concerns whether your child should get the vaccine please contact our office to make an appointment.  Please note, as of now, our office does not have the vaccine to give to patients.
