We are happy to announce that we have received a limited number of the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine. At this moment in time, the Pfizer vaccine is only eligible for our patients 12 years and older. To sign up for the Covid-19 vaccine, please log onto your patient portal account to schedule an appointment at the designated time slots on Sunday, May 23rd or Thursday, May 27th. We will not be scheduling appointments over the phone, but please contact our office if you have any difficulty scheduling through the portal.    

 

Please note each appointment is good for ONE patient. For multiple patients, please book multiple appointments.

Once you book an appointment, please make sure to check your email for further instructions. 

We will also be opening more appointment slots tomorrow (5/19/21) for Sunday, May 23rd and Thursday, May 27th. 

We appreciate your continued patience during this time and we hope to be able to offer the COVID-19 vaccine to our younger patients once FDA approved.
