Happy summer everyone. We hope that everyone is getting outside and enjoying a more normal summer. We thought it time for another update on where we are with Covid-19.

Legacy is thrilled to be able to vaccinate our patients 12 years old and older. We have Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine in stock and encourage all those eligible to get vaccinated. Getting vaccinated is the way out of this pandemic, and the way to be able to feel confident you are protecting yourself and your family. Give the office a call to schedule a nurse visit appointment for the vaccine.

Legacy now has Covid-19 rapid PCR testing capabilities in our office. We can do our own testing for Covid-19 with a turnaround time of less than an hour using a test that is accepted by schools, camps, and workplaces.

Legacy continues with NO walk-ins from 8:00 – 9:00 am; we are unable to have sick patients sitting in our waiting room due to Covid-19. If your child is ill and needs to be seen, give the office a call and we will see your child that day. We continue to use our backdoor access for sick patients.

Masks are required in medical facilities for EVERYONE over 3 years old regardless of vaccine status. Please help us by wearing a mask while in our office.

Lastly, I am asked multiple times a day when I think Covid-19 vaccines will be available for children under 12 years old. Currently, the Pfizer study for children 6 months up to 12 years old is underway and everything is running smoothly. Based on the timeline, my best guess for EUA authorization for the 5-to-11-year age group is sometime around Halloween. The younger age groups should become eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine around the end of the year, beginning of 2022. This is my best guess as I march out the timeline of the current Pfizer study underway. A pediatric Moderna Covid-19 study is just getting started worldwide in the next few weeks so it will be well into 2022 for a Moderna Covid-19 vaccine to be available to children.

The CDC recommends ALL people ages 6 months and older get the flu shot every season. The flu shot not only protects you and your family, but the weakest in our community (babies, elderly, sickly).  With COVID continuing to circulate, adding influenza cases in our community will put another undue strain on our healthcare systems.  So please, do your part and get vaccinated! We are happy to vaccinate patients/parents/siblings during your regularly scheduled appointments.  We also have flu shot clinics that are conveniently set up for evenings/weekends to help get our patient population vaccinated.  Our currently scheduled clinic dates/times are:

Saturday, October 2nd, starting at 8:30am

Thursday, October 7th, starting at 5pm

Wednesday, October 13th, starting at 5pm

Thursday, October 21st, starting at 5pm

Monday, October 25th, starting at 5pm

Friday, October 29th, starting at 5pm

These are not walk in appointments, so please set up the date and time you would like so we can keep things running smoothly.

**The flu shot can be safely given with any other vaccines needed at this time – including the Pfizer COVID19 vaccine (which we also have, and are happy to vaccinate any and all who are eligible).

Thank you all!!
