Are you worried about RSV (respiratory syncytial virus) causing a potentially severe illness in your infant under age 8 months or your at-risk toddler under age 20 months?  We are, too!  Are you interested in learning about some ways to minimize or possibly avoid severe RSV infections?  If so, please click on the links below for more information.

Beyfortus (nirsevimab), the antibody injection available for infants and toddlers has been in very short supply.  We have a limited number of doses available at this time for babies who have private insurance and weigh at least 11 lbs.  We have not been able to order the doses yet for our infants under a weight of 11 lbs.  We will let you know when the doses for the smaller babies and children receiving VFC vaccines are available. 

Important note: if pregnant women receive the RSV vaccine at least two weeks before delivery (please refer to the links below), most of their newborns will not need the Beyfortus injection!

Please contact us today if you are interested in scheduling an appointment for your baby’s Beyfortus injection or would like to receive it with their regular vaccines!
