Flu Vaccine and Flu Vaccine Clinics
Flu vaccine is here and we are starting flu vaccine clinics. If your child has a visit scheduled soon, the flu vaccine can be given at that visit. New this year- we are offering flu vaccine to parents who register with us ahead of time! We are excited to be able to offer this to our Timber Lane families.
You can schedule a flu vaccine appointment through your child's patient portal. Call us if you don't see a date at your office, would like to register a parent, or have other questions.
New Bivalent Covid Vaccine Boosters
The new bivalent Covid booster has now been approved for ages 12 and up. We do not yet have this vaccine in-office but should soon. Check our webpage and social media for updates.
Covid vaccine news
We are vaccinating children age 6 months and up for Covid and providing booster shots for those age 5 and up. We have both Pfizer and Moderna vaccine in stock for infants and toddlers and Pfizer vaccine for children age 5 and up. You can schedule a vaccine visit through your portal or by calling the office.
With the current available information, we do not feel one vaccine for infants and toddlers is more effective than the other. Both are thought to be very effective at preventing severe disease.
A recent Covid infection is thought to provide adequate immune protection for the first 90 days. If your child recently had a Covid infection, you can choose to wait 90 days after the infection before having your child vaccinated or boosted.
Changes to Weekend Hours
Our South Burlington office will be open for regular weekend hours on Saturdays only. We have had continued staff shortages during the pandemic and our hard working team needs a day to rest so we can continue to take excellent care of our patients. As always, Saturday visits will be for same-day sick visits and newborns only. On Sundays, you can reach the nurse triage line and on-call doctor by calling the office for any urgent concerns.
Farewell to Dr. Duff and Welcome to Dr. Whitney Sevey!
Sadly, Dr. Duff will be moving to New Hampshire this August. We will miss him and wish him all the best.
We are excited to welcome Dr. Whitney Sevey to our Timber Lane Pediatrics team in September. Dr. Sevey recently completed her pediatric chief residency at UVM and we are thrilled she will be joining us. You can read more about Dr. Sevey on our providers page.
