Dear Village families -

CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) INFECTION:

The safety and well-being of our patients is our primary concern.

As the days and weeks move forward, we must focus on keeping our community as healthy as possible in the face of the COVID-19 outbreak. At Village Pediatrics, we have been monitoring the latest announcements and have been communicating with area health resources daily. We have been adjusting our scheduling and phone advice protocols, along with our cleansing and disinfecting/rooming procedures in order to prevent the spread of illness.

We would like our patients and families to know that there will be new developments during the COVID-19 outbreak and we cannot predict how quickly advice and information may change. We recommend monitoring the CDC website at: www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/ for the most up-to-date information on national recommendations. In the event there are patients who become ill and require COVID-19 testing, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment is coordinating all testing for COVID-19.

The American Academy of Pediatrics is also regularly updating its site with helpful information as we progress through the COVID-19 outbreak. We appreciate your commitment to helping us keep our community safe!

Please call us @ (913) 642-2100, if your child becomes ill.   

 

 

FLU CLINIC INFORMATION

Flu shots and FluMist are now available! We do have a limited amount of FluMist and they are first come first serve. Due to COVID-19 we are doing things a little differently this year. We recommend that everyone ages six months and older get their flu vaccine. Drive thru clinics will be on Saturdays only beginning 9/19 through 10/24 from 9am-3pm and by appointment only. Also, we would like everyone to go to the patient forms tab on our website and fill out the Flu Consent form for each child prior to arriving. All clinics will be conducted in the parking lot on the North side of the building. 

If you have a scheduled appointment during the week in the office you will be able to receive the vaccine then but we cannot accommodate any extra siblings and you will need to schedule a time for one of the clinics. 

We appreciate your cooperation as we work through this new process. We look forward to seeing you!
