6/30/2022:  GREAT NEWS!  We got a surprise large lot of Moderna vaccines for children under 5 today!!!  We are scheduling a clinic for tomorrow Friday, July 1, 2022 from 9am to 4:30pm.  If you would like your child to receive a vaccine, please send us an "Appointment Request" through MyChart (please note, do not send a message to the provider and please do not call the office). We will call you to schedule tomorrow's appointment.    

6/22/2022:  COVID Vaccines for Under 5 years:  We are continuing to work hard to obtain Covid vaccine for our 6mo to 5 year olds and started this process weeks ago.  Thus far, Berkeley Public Health has only provided us with 100 doses which we will be giving to our highest risk patients shortly.  If your child qualifies, we have already contacted you to set up this appointment. 

We have been frustrated with the lack of supply and poor communication from public health departments about the vaccine delivery. However, we anticipate more vaccine availability next week and will provide information about scheduling as soon as we get deliveries of vaccines.  

We will plan on offering 2nd and 3rd doses for those who get their 1st vaccine elsewhere.  We will be continuing to communicate with you via mychart messages with updates. Please do not call the office regarding vaccines as we need to maintain our ability to provide routine and urgent medical care. 

We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we navigate this challenging time together!
