Welcome to Vickery Pediatrics Pediatric Care in Cumming, GA
COVID-19 Vaccine Information:
To our Vickery Pediatrics families: we have the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine available. Recipients must be 18 years or older, until the CDC states we can start vaccinating younger children.
We will begin our vaccination clinic this Tuesday, March 30. Due to the restrictions on how long the vaccine lasts, the clinic will run Tuesday through Thursday, from 10:00am to 3:00pm. We must do the vaccinations in cohorts of 10, so that we do not waste any doses.
If you are interested, please email Nurse Kim at: firstname.lastname@example.org. When you come, please bring a picture ID and insurance card, if you have one. Be prepared to stay for at least 15 minutes after administration of the vaccine.
You should NOT get the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine:
- If you have had a severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis) or an immediate allergic reaction—even if it was not severe—to any ingredient in an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine (such as polyethylene glycol), you should not get an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine.
- If you have had a severe allergic reaction (anaphylaxis) or an immediate allergic reaction—even if it was not severe—after getting the first dose of the vaccine, you should not get a second dose of either of the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.
- An allergic reaction is considered severe when a person needs to be treated with epinephrine or EpiPen©or if they must go to the hospital. Learn about common side effects of COVID-19 vaccines and when to call a doctor.
- An immediate allergic reaction means a reaction within 4 hours of getting vaccinated, including symptoms such as hives, swelling, or wheezing (respiratory distress).
If you aren’t able to get an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine, you may still be able to get a different type of COVID-19 vaccine.
