COVID-19 Vaccination Information for Patients

The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine is now approved for patients 12 years and older. We strongly urge all of our patients 12 years and older to get the COVID-19 vaccine.

The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine is a 2 dose vaccine given 21 days apart. Immunity from the shot occurs 2 weeks after the 2nd dose.

We are not yet a designated COVID-19 vaccination site. If we become a COVID-19 vaccination site we will notify you by email.

Current Information (Updated 2021-05-16)

  1. CONSENT FORM — any patient younger than 18 years is required to show written consent from a parent or guardian. The parent does not have to be present at the vaccine appointment but the patient must show the consent form. You can go to https://www.mass.gov/lists/ma-consent-forms-for-people-under-18-years-of-age to download a consent form.

  2. SIDE EFFECTS — the side effects of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for patients ages 12-15 are similar to patients ages 16 and older: pain, fever, chills, fatigue. These side effects are more frequent after the 2nd vaccine.
