Covid Vaccine Information

We STRONGLY RECOMMEND the COVID vaccine for anyone who is eligible.  Right now, this includes anyone 16 years and older.  The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) for the CDC both recommend COVID vaccine for eligible teens.  For now, only the Pfizer vaccine is recommended for 16-17 year olds.

For more information on the vaccines you can listen to this recorded Q&A session with Dr. St Clair as he answers your questions.
