The providers and staff at Allegro Pediatrics understand that the COVID pandemic often feels overwhelming and difficult to navigate. We are here to support you and provide trusted resources to help address your family’s concerns.
COVID-19 is a serious illness, and the risk of infection is scary. The good news is that we can help protect our children that are not yet able to be vaccinated by complying with multiple layers of protection. This includes wearing a well-fitting mask in public, staying home when anyone in your household is symptomatic, getting tested for COVID if anyone in your household is symptomatic or had a possible exposure, physical distancing, performing good hand hygiene, and receiving a COVID vaccine when eligible.
Please see the resources below for more information on your specific topic of concern. We encourage you to schedule a Virtual Visit if you have a particular situation in your family that you would like to discuss with your primary care pediatrician.
All individuals 12 years and older are eligible to receive the COVID vaccine. We were able to vaccinate thousands of children and teens during our mass drive-thru vaccination clinics. At this time, we are not able to provide access to the Pfizer vaccine during routine clinic appointments. We hope to offer COVID vaccines to our patients again in the fall.
If your child 12+ needs to be vaccinated, please check for appointments at community sites: Vaccinate WA: COVID-19 Vaccine Availability.
Research has reassuringly shown that the COVID vaccines available in the U.S. are safe and effective. However, we know that you may have specific questions about your personal decision. If so, please reach out to your primary care pediatrician. You may find our virtual visits convenient for this type of discussion. We are here to support your family.
