The news that an immunization for COVID19 has been approved by the FDA under an Emergency Use Authorization (EAU), is encouraging!
Other vaccines will likely follow, and the American Academy of Pediatrics has urged researchers to include the pediatric population in vaccine trials.
Our office will be updating information about administering the vaccine as information becomes available.
The Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is approved for 16 years and up. This vaccine is being rolled out according to the CDC plan to prioritize distribution to high risk populations and ultimately the general population.
Right now, California pediatricians are waiting to learn how and when this vaccination will be provided to teens who are eligible for the Pfizer vaccine or any of the other vaccine candidates.
Our office is a Vaccines For Children provider. The H1N1 vaccine was distributed through VFC in 2009, and we are ready for another successful collaboration if that is one chosen distribution route.
Our office is fully integrated with national, state, and local government and health communities for information about providing the vaccine.
Until we have more information, we are focusing on our clinical care responsibilities, and are unable to offer a waiting list.
When the vaccine(s) is/are available, we will provide the information about the vaccine(s) and scheduling on our website (https://www.cvpediatrics.com).
