Hi MVP families! Thank YOU for all your positive energy ๐Ÿฅฐ and feedback this week. Helps get through a crazy week(s?!) when weโ€™re all being kind. Letโ€™s get to this weekโ€™s update:

๐Ÿ™ COVID is still the most common cause for a sick visit to MVP ๐Ÿฉบ๐Ÿฅผthis week.

๐Ÿ™ Don’t fret though- we are still seeing plenty of other viral colds ๐Ÿคง๐Ÿ˜ช that are ๐Ÿšซnot COVID.

๐Ÿ™ We have had almost no flu or strep this week. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ

๐Ÿ™ We are currently offering boosters ๐Ÿ’‰ for everyone 12 and up, five months after their second shot. ๐Ÿ“žnow!

๐Ÿ™ Remember โ€” it is not too late to get your kid vaccinated ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ- the vaccine, although not preventing infection with Omicron, is doing a good job of keeping kids out of the hospital๐Ÿจ.

๐Ÿ™A common question is, ” if my kid has COVID when can they be boosted?” The recommendation is any time after they have completed their isolation, no need to wait ๐Ÿ‘‰๐ŸผโŒš๏ธ.

๐Ÿ™ We continue to see evidence that COVID has taken a huge toll on the mental health ๐Ÿง  ๐Ÿ˜Ÿpatients of our school aged children and adolescents. This new surge is triggering more anxiety in some ๐Ÿ’†๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ Be sure to reach out ๐Ÿ“ž๐Ÿ“ฒ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป if you feel your kiddo needs some extra support. (weโ€™ll add more ideas for support in our stories ๐Ÿ”œ)

๐Ÿ™ We are OPEN for routine visits, sick visits and are offering telehealth if you wish to avoid coming into the office (no telehealth for well check ups though.

๐Ÿ™ Questions, comments, concerns? Please send us an email, give us a call, drop in our DMโ€™s ๐Ÿ“ฒ or leave some inspiration for another parent/family below. Happy Friday folks! ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’™
