NEW COVID VACCINE CLINIC Saturday November 27, 2021

Hello Greater Lowell Pediatrics Families,

As part of our on-going effort to provide additional Covid-19 vaccine clinics, we are now able to offer the vaccine to our 5–11-year age group in our WESTFORD office on November 27, 2021, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.. All patients registered with the MyChart patient portal have previously received a ticket and can now go back into MyChart and schedule THE FIRST DOSE of TWO for this coming Saturday in WESTFORD. 50 doses will be available for this clinic.

Due to unprecedented call volume, you will not have the option to call ahead to book a Covid-19 vaccine appointment. The only way to schedule an appointment is through MyChart patient portal. If you do not have an account or need assistance getting on the portal, please call our office and one of our support staff will assist you in getting onto the portal.


COVID-19 Vaccine Update - November 11, 2021

Hello Greater Lowell Pediatrics Families,

As part of our first available Covid-19 vaccine clinic, we are now able to offer the vaccine to our 5–11-year age group in our Lowell office on November 13, 2021, from noon to 4 p.m.. All patients registered with the MyChart patient portal will receive an invitation to book a vaccine appointment for the upcoming clinic.

Due to unprecedented call volume, you will not have the option to call ahead to book a Covid-19 vaccine appointment. The only way to schedule an appointment is through MyChart patient portal. If you do not have an account or need assistance getting on the portal, please call our office and one of our support staff will assist you in getting onto the portal.

Once you receive an invitation on the patient portal, the message will read - “Your child has an appointment that needs to be scheduled for an upcoming Covid-19 vaccine.“ Next click Schedule Now, answer 8 pre-screening questions, and then click Continue to go to the scheduling grid. Please note that only 100 appointment slots are available on a first come, first served basis.

We will offer future clinics for those who cannot participate on November 13. If you do not successfully register for the first clinic, we encourage you to visit our website www.greaterlowellpediatrics.com and Facebook page for updates on subsequent clinics or for alternative Covid-19 vaccine clinic sites.

As a reminder, this vaccine is a 2-dose series, with the second dose being given three weeks later. We will be scheduling the second dose at the time of the first dose appointment.

At this time, we are only able to vaccinate children aged 5 to 11 years old.

Respectfully,

Greater Lowell Pediatrics


COVID-19 Update - June 11, 2021

Masks are still mandatory to enter our Lowell and Westford Offices. Thank you for your cooperation.

All of us at Greater Lowell Pediatrics remain committed to our goal of providing compassionate and comprehensive family-centered care despite the challenges presented by the Covid-19 epidemic.  We want to let you know about the things we’re doing and some of the changes we’ve made to fulfill that mission in as safe and convenient a way as possible.  We know that parents are rightly concerned about exposure to the virus when they come to a medical office.  That caution is justified.  We believe that we’ve reduced the risks as much as possible by:

  • Seeing our well patients and our sick patients in physically separate areas of the office
  • Carefully screening all patients for exposure to the virus or symptoms suggestive of Covid infection and if present directing them to appropriate care outside our office setting
  • To the extent possible scheduling most of our well visits in the morning and illness visits in the afternoon
  • Allowing extended time for each visit, which avoids crowding and eliminates the need to be in our waiting room
  • Having all our staff wear masks, and when appropriate gloves, eye shields and gowns and requiring all our patients to be masked in the office
  • Diligent cleaning of rooms and equipment before and after each visit
  • Scheduling telehealth “virtual” visits whenever appropriate and/or requested
  • Scheduling checkup visits on Saturday mornings in our Westford office

Although the COVID virus continues to be present in our community, we’re encouraged that the rates of infection have gone down.  We’re also concerned that at the height of the epidemic some of our patients have understandably fallen behind on routine checkups, important immunizations, or care for non-urgent problems.  We think that now is the right time to catch up on needed care, particularly since  the fall may bring a resurgence of the virus as well as all the other illness that comes with cooler weather and a return to school.  We’ll do our very best to accommodate your scheduling needs!
