COVID VACCINE 6 mo-5 yr

Updated June 24th: We have been provided a small allotment of Pfizer Covid vaccine for the 6 month up to 5 year age group. We are opening up some appointments. Please call to schedule. We ask that you do not call if your child has a well visit within the next 2 months or you have already scheduled a vaccine appointment at another institution. Also, we would like to remind you that this will be a Nurse/MA visit only. You will not be seeing your doctor. If there are any questions about the vaccine, please send a portal before the appointment day so your doctor or doctor’s staff have time to respond.

Seattle Children’s Hospital will start offering both Pfizer and Moderna vaccine (assuming availability) on their main campus for 6mo-5yr age group. AND Odessa Brown – Othello will start offering Pfizer only. Scheduling is through Seattle Children’s public portal: Seattle Children’s public portal COVID-19 Vaccines.

Here at NSP, we are actively working on all the logistics to allow our clinic to vaccinate your child. At this time, we are not scheduling any appointments. When we have a confirmed supply of vaccine and a plan for the safest administration process, we will update our website and Facebook. Thanks for your patience.

Formula shortage

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, there have been significant shortages of infant formulas in some stores. Current shortages have been largely caused by supply chain issues and a recall of several contaminated baby formula products. Check with your local stores or online retailers about availability.
To help ease the impact of shortages, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) advises buying no more than a 10-day to 2-week supply of formula.
What if baby formula is out of stock everywhere?
If you’re struggling to find baby formula, here are some tips that can help.
Keep in mind, this advice is strictly for URGENT situations. If you have any concerns about your baby’s nutrition, please talk with your pediatrician.
