We are constantly working to stay up to date on all evidence-based Pediatric care recommendations, including COVID-19 vaccinations. With that said, we want to be clear that our recommendation is that children ages 12 and up get the COVID-19 vaccination if they’re able. As we anxiously await the availability of vaccine data among younger age groups, children under the age of 12, we will keep this page updated with our thoughts and recommendations as we receive additional information.
We currently offer the Moderna and Pfizer vaccinations, either of which your child will receive based on their age.
*Please note: You do not need to be a patient at Parkside to receive the Covid-19 vaccine from us.Sign Up
When looking online for information regarding the Covid-19 vaccine (or anything medical for that matter), please always consider the source. The most reliable sources for medical information will cite their references, and any accompanying research should be from peer-reviewed scientific journals. Here are a few websites, articles, and studies we trust as resources when doing our own research.
