Berkeley Pediatrics is giving Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to patients 12 years and older by appointment only. We are anticipating approval of COVID vaccines for children ages 5 to 11 in early November but DO NOT have information yet on if/when we will receive vaccines for administration. PLEASE DO NOT CALL the office for information. We will send MyChart messages and post here and on social media as soon as we are scheduling vaccines.
Two fully vaccinated caregivers will be allow to accompany the patient on all visits. (updated 10/18/2021)
Please contact the office prior to your appointment if you or your child has ANY of the following symptoms: runny nose, congestion, sore throat, fever, cough, shortness of breath, vomiting or diarrhea, or loss of taste or smell. We may not be able to see your child in person and may need to reschedule.
If you have travelled out of state or by plane in the last 10 days OR is if you have been exposed to an individual with COVID within the last 14 days, your visit will need to changed to a virtual visit or rescheduled.
