Hi MVP families! Thank YOU for all your positive energy 🥰 and feedback this week. Helps get through a crazy week(s?!) when we’re all being kind. Let’s get to this week’s update:
🏙 COVID is still the most common cause for a sick visit to MVP 🩺🥼this week.
🏙 Don’t fret though- we are still seeing plenty of other viral colds 🤧😪 that are 🚫not COVID.
🏙 We have had almost no flu or strep this week. 👏🏽👏🏽
🏙 We are currently offering boosters 💉 for everyone 12 and up, five months after their second shot. 📞now!
🏙 Remember — it is not too late to get your kid vaccinated 🙏🏼- the vaccine, although not preventing infection with Omicron, is doing a good job of keeping kids out of the hospital🏨.
🏙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 👉🏼⌚️.
🏙 We continue to see evidence that COVID has taken a huge toll on the mental health 🧠 😟patients of our school aged children and adolescents. This new surge is triggering more anxiety in some 💆🏾♀️ Be sure to reach out 📞📲👩🏻💻 if you feel your kiddo needs some extra support. (we’ll add more ideas for support in our stories 🔜)
🏙 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.
🏙 Questions, comments, concerns? Please send us an email, give us a call, drop in our DM’s 📲 or leave some inspiration for another parent/family below. Happy Friday folks! 💛🧡💗💙
