COVID vaccines for children ages 6 months through 4 years

Dear InterMed Patients,

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention over the weekend issued guidelines for administering the Pfizer or Moderna COVID vaccine to children ages 6 months through 4 years. Our Family Medicine and Pediatric physicians fully support the vaccine, and those of us who have children in this age group are thrilled to have them vaccinated. We encourage patients who are eligible to receive the vaccine.

Scheduling your child’s COVID vaccine

We anticipate receiving our pre-ordered supply by July. Once it arrives, we will let you know when we are able to make it available to your children.

Although our ability to administer the vaccine is limited at this time, we are working hard to offer as many opportunities for vaccination as possible. If your child already has an upcoming visit booked, we encourage you to simply request they receive their vaccine while in the office for that appointment. Alternatively, if you would like to pursue scheduling vaccination for your child outside of a routine appointment, please call our Vaccine Scheduling Line at 207-523-3919 or send a message through your child’s portal account to discuss your options.

If your child receives the vaccine outside of InterMed, please send us an image of their card through the secure file upload on our website so that we can update your child’s records.

Please stay safe and well.
