Practice Updates & Alerts
Thank you for your patience as we address your calls and experience an unprecedented need for sick appointments. Most pre-schools/schools are now requiring Covid testing and/or medical clearances if your child is experiencing any number of symptoms found in most respiratory viruses. Do not send your child to school or bring them to the office if their test results are pending or if anyone in your immediate household has test results pending.
Parents: Please do not bring your child to the office if they have COVID-19 test results pending or if anyone in the household has COVID-19 test results pending. We continue to follow federal, state, and local public health official recommendations and mandatory masks are required and enforced throughout your visit with us.
Dearborn Pediatrics will be providing the COVID-19 vaccine in the near future. Meanwhile we encourage all parents to get your child (age 12 and older) immunized at your local health department or pharmacy. Do not delay this very important immunization!
Per federal, state, and local guidelines, masks are MANDATORY upon entering our facility and throughout your child’s visit.
With the COVID-19 vaccine release, we want to keep you informed on the latest status. Currently in Phase 1 the vaccine will be going to hospitals. As the supply builds up it will then go to the rest of the health care community…
Flu vaccines are available Monday and Tuesday, 9:30am-8:30pm, Wednesday thru Friday, 9:30am-4:30pm, and Saturdays from 9:30-12:30pm. An appointment is not necessary. Please call us from the parking lot when you arrive.
Influenza (Flu) and COVID-19 are both contagious respiratory illnesses, but they are caused by different viruses.
How many hours does your child need? All children thrive on a regular bedtime routine. From infants and toddlers to school-aged kids and teens, parents want to know how many hours of sleep are recommended.
To keep families safe, our office is following the currently established guidelines to potentially avoid exposure to patients and providers in our offices.
