COVID-19 / Flu Season
FLU VACCINES NOW AVAILABLE!
To Schedule your Child’s Flu Vaccine Appointment, please go here. Appointments are available Monday/Tuesday evenings and Saturday mornings in October.
WE HAVE THE COVID VACCINE IN OFFICE!
Through September, COVID Vaccination clinics are now available during office visits and Monday/Tuesday evenings.
You can register your child ages 12 and older here.
You can register yourself (parents, grandparents, aunts/uncles, etc.) here.
In October, COVID Vaccines will only be available during limited office hours.
Per the Biden Administration’s new OSHA regulations, all persons over the age of 2 must wear a mask in patient areas (waiting room, exam rooms, patient restrooms, etc.). Visitors with proof of vaccination may remove their mask in non-patient areas (behind the front desk & clinical office area, break room, etc.) We apologize for any inconvenience!
Breathe Easy! This fall we installed an air purification system for the health and well-being of our patients, families, and staff.
All children with positive exposure or potential exposure to COVID-19 should be scheduled as a vehicle visit.
We currently offer Telemedicine and Vehicle/Curb-Side visits, please call us to speak to Clinical as to which type of visit is most appropriate to address your child’s symptoms.
***WE HAVE COVID-19 RAPID TESTING***
Your child can get an antigen test done via nose swab that will give results in 15 minutes. For the most accurate results, your child should be tested within 5 days of symptoms. For more information on this test, please see this document from the FDA: FACT SHEET FOR PATIENTS To protect our patients and staff, if you believe your child needs a COVID-19 test, please schedule a vehicle visit.
For a Telemedicine Visit with Gateway Pediatrics
We use a HIPAA compliant service called Doxy.me. Once you have an appointment, we will text you 5-10 minutes before your appointment time with a link to the Telemedicine Visit (or you can go to https://doxy.me/gatewaypeds). There is no app for you to download. Click on the link, agree to the terms and conditions, and then you’ll be placed in a waiting room until the provider is ready to “see” you. Please make sure you allow the program to access your camera and microphone.
**PLEASE BE ADVISED: All Telemedicine Visits and Vehicle/Curb-Side Visits are billable to you / your insurance just like an in-office visit. Copays will be automatically collected from your Credit Card on File.**
Non-Maryland Residing Patients: Unfortunately, due to current law we are unable to perform Telemedicine services if your child resides outside of Maryland. We will be happy to serve you in our office or with a vehicle visit.
