Please be aware, the following restrictions
are currently in effect at MCH.
WE URGE YOU to do the right thing and get vaccinated, for the safety of our community, our neighbors and loved-ones.

The CDC suggests these steps to help prepare
for your child’s vaccination visit:

  • Get tips for how to support your child before, during, and after the visit.
  • Your child will need a second shot of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine 3 weeks after their first shot.
  • Talk to your child before the visit about what to expect.
  • Tell the doctor or nurse if your child has any allergies to any ingredient in the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine.
  • Comfort your child during the appointment.
  • To prevent fainting and injuries related to fainting, your child should be seated or lying down during vaccination and for 15 minutes after the vaccine is given.
  • After your child’s COVID-19 vaccination, you will be asked to stay for 15–30 minutes so your child can be observed in case they have a severe allergic reaction and need immediate treatment.

MCH fully endorses the CDC's guideline and
urges parents to vaccinate their children.

Please Note:
A Mandatory Mask requirement remains in place for everyone entering MCH's campus or off-site Practices,
