The office is closed today in observance of Martin Luther King Day (1/18/2021)

1/6/2020:   For YOU, for US and for ALL--So excited to report that ALL our providers and staff have received OUR FIRST COVID-19 VACCINES!!!

Do you have a special needs child with cerebral palsy, down syndrome, epilepsy or other specialized health care needs requiring mechanical ventilation or other technological support?  Your family members may qualify to receive the COVID vaccine as a "health care worker" in Phase IA.  Please contact your doctor by MyChart for information and to get documentation to qualify

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. 

 Only ONE caregiver will be allowed to attend an in person visit for children older than 2 months.

If you have travelled out of state or by plane in the last 14 days OR is if you have been exposed to an individual with COVID, your visit will need to changed to a virtual visit or rescheduled. 

Travel Update

COVID Vaccine Info

We are able to refer for testing at Benioff UCSF Oakland for ONLY symptomatic  or exposed patients.    Click here for other COVID-19 testing resources.

Injectable influenza vaccines are still available.  Please contact our office to schedule ASAP.  

UPDATE re: Bay Area Shelter in Place Order

We are updating you given the Bay Area counties’ newest Shelter in Place order effective in Berkeley on 12/6/2020.  

Please be assured that Berkeley Pediatrics plans to remain open as a provider of essential medical services and will continue to be available to provide excellent medical care of your family.  We will continue to offer both in person visits under the essential business rule and telehealth visits for issues where it would be reasonable to do so.  Well child visits with vaccinations should not be delayed given the importance of staying protected against vaccine preventable diseases, maintenance of physical and emotional health, and assessment of normal development.  However, if you would like to convert your visit to a virtual visit followed by a brief in person physical exam to reduce exposure, please contact our office.  

Over the last 9 months, we’ve been working extremely hard to put in place COVID-19 safety protocols that have been working well to keep everybody in our office safe.  (Please read the COVID safety protocol).  We are still seeing all patients with symptoms that could be related to COVID-19 as a virtual or a car visit—these patients are not entering our building. 

Our community's COVID-19 infection rates, and therefore risk,  are at the highest since the beginning of the pandemic.  We urge our families to follow these orders by not traveling and not congregating with members out of your household.  Hand hygiene, wearings masks, and staying distanced and outside remain our best  methods for reducing COVID-19 infection.  

We realize that all of you are physically tired and emotional exhausted from the stress of this pandemic (we know we are).  But now more than ever we have to stay strong and push through this latest surge as hope from vaccines and improved treatments is just around the corner.  

We hope you stay well and safe, 

The Providers and Staff of Berkeley Pediatrics
