The COVID-19 vaccine for kids ages 5-11 (updated 10/21/21)
We have everything in place to be able to offer this vaccine to our patients at the soonest possible availability. However we are unlikely to be approved for the first round of distribution. If you are interested in getting your 5-11 year old(s) the COVID vaccine, please check back here often or please call the office at 425-820-7700 and follow the prompts to our COVID information line.
The COVID-19 vaccine for kids ages 12+
We are NOT currently offering the vaccine for kids ages 12 and up and are directing our patients to local pharmacies to receive their vaccines. (We hope to carry the vaccine in the future but are not yet providing it.)
- We are able to perform nasal swab testing for COVID-19 in office, however testing at other sites (e.g. DOH drive-through or Seattle Children's) has a much quicker turnaround time.
- Testing at Seattle Children's requires a telemedicine visit with us first.
What to expect at your visit
We have implemented some clinic changes given the COVID-19 pandemic to try to minimize risk to you and our staff. Many visits can be done using telemedicine and your provider will let you know if an in-person appointment is required. For those patients who are being seen in-person, we have implemented some changes in order to keep everyone as healthy as possible. - First, we ask that you remain in your car until you receive a call and are cleared to come into the clinic. - Second, we are following recommended healthcare guidelines and ask that all adults and kids over age 2, regardless of vaccination status, bring and wear a mask while in the clinic. We will be wearing one as well. - Lastly, if any member of the household is feeling unwell, has a fever or cough, or has had a fever or cough in the last 72 hours, we ask that you please reschedule your appointment.
We are currently seeing all ages for their check-ups. When you are coming in for a wellness visit, you can be confident all high touch areas are regularly sanitized. We will minimize your time in-office and work to keep everyone safe by following the procedures above.
