Are you getting your COVID-19 vaccine?
 
Our practitioners recommend avoiding allergy shots, allergy testing and all IV treatments the day before, the day of, and the day after your vaccination. Please contact our office if you need to reschedule an appointment with our IV or allergy department to allow for this time before and after your COVID-19 vaccine.

 

Information on COVID Vaccine

The Covid 19 vaccine is recommended for most people. In the majority of cases, the risk for complications and long term issues from contracting the Covid-19 virus significantly outweigh the risks associated with vaccination. For most patients we are recommending vaccination.

We are not recommending vaccination if you have a history of an anaphylactic reaction to any of the ingredients in the vaccine; if you have a history of an allergic reaction to the covid 19 vaccine; if you have had a severe allergic reaction to any previous vaccination; or you have a history of vaccine injury. Do not get vaccinated if you have a history of hives or anaphylaxis from exposure to polysorbate or polyethylene glycol (PEG).

To review in depth the pre vaccination check list, go to the CDC’s web site at: https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/covid-19/downloads/pre-vaccination-screening-form.pdf

If you would like to review your specific medical issues in relation to vaccination and receive recommendation for immune, allergic, or liver support during the vaccination process, please call reception and book an appointment with one of our practitioners.

Office Policy Changes

  • All staff, patients and visitors must wear a mask* in the building. Not all masks are equally effective at protecting yourself or others!  If you are coming inside the clinic, please wear a fitted, multi-layer cotton mask, a surgical mask, or an N95 mask without a valve*.

*After reviewing this new study on the efficacy of masks in preventing the spread of COVID, we are no longer allowing neck gators, bandanas, or masks with valves to be worn in our clinic.  Neck gators were shown to promote the spread of infection. Bandanas and masks with valves have been shown to be ineffective at preventing infection.

  • Allergy testing, IMs and IVs are being scheduled on a reduced basis.
  • We are unable to allow guests to accompany patients at this time. (Exceptions can be made for patients who need assistance, please arrange this with a member of our reception team at the time of scheduling your appointment. Thank you.)
