The FDA and CDC have approved the use of COVID vaccines for children aged 5 and up. This still has to be approved by the CDPH before we can start giving these vaccines. It’s likely the approval will come by the end of the week, but the dosage is different than adult vaccines, so we will need to get a special supply to vaccinate these kids.
The County has requested a supply of pediatric COVID vaccines, but has not received them yet. Once they do, the County will be distributing vaccines to our clinic and others around the county.
While we await final approval and the supply of vaccines, we have started a waitlist for those who are interested in getting the vaccine once it’s available. Call us at 964-1251 or email us at with your child’s name, date of birth, and phone number and we will get him or her on the list. We will contact you as soon as we can start scheduling the vaccines.

Es probable que la aprobación llegue al final de la semana, pero la dosis es diferente a la de las vacunas para adultos, por lo que necesitaremos un suministro especial para vacunar a estos niños.
El condado ha solicitado un suministro de vacunas COVID pediátricas, pero aún no las ha recibido. Una vez que lo hagan, el condado distribuirá las vacunas a nuestra clínica y otras en todo el condado.
Mientras esperamos la aprobación final y el suministro de vacunas, hemos iniciado una lista de espera para aquellos que estén interesados en recibir la vacuna una vez que esté disponible. Llámenos al 964-1251 o envíenos un correo electrónico a con el nombre, la fecha de nacimiento y el número de teléfono de su hijo y lo incluiremos en la lista. Nos comunicaremos con usted tan pronto como podamos comenzar a programar las vacunas.
