COVID-19 Update

FOCUS on SAFETY:

Keeping patients, staff and providers safe is our number one priority. Currently, we are seeing all patients for well child care visits and encouraging families to keep up with their children’s scheduled immunizations.  When you come into the clinic to see your provider we want to reassure you that we here at Renton Pediatric Associates have a comprehensive safety plan in place that includes:

*Screening all our patients over the phone and when they first enter the clinic for COVID-19 symptoms

*Requiring masks for all patients over the age of 2 years as well as all of our staff and providers

*Rigorous cleaning protocols and surface disinfecting

*Adaptation of our spaces to allow physical distancing

*The use of personal protective equipment by our staff during your visit

*The maintenance of different times for our well child visits and sick office visit

 

ABOUT your VISIT:

With the recent resurgence of COVID in our community, please keep in mind our guidelines to keep you safe when visiting our office

*All parents and patients over two years of age must wear a mask for the entire visit

*Please bring only the patient who has the scheduled appointment and one parent to the office

*Please call our office to reschedule if you or anyone in your household within the past 14 days has had exposure to someone with a positive COVID19 case, has symptoms consistent with COVID 19, or has traveled outside of WA state

*Please utilize the handwashing stations in our office

*Please allow a few extra minutes before your appointment time for our screening process

Flu Vaccine Clinics

Renton Pediatric Associates will be having Flu vaccine clinics on Saturday mornings starting the weekend of October 3rd. We will be offering appointments from 9:00am-1:00pm each Saturday. We will also be offering limited appointments during the week for the flu vaccine as well. Please call the clinic to schedule an appointments, no walk in visits will be allowed.

If your child has an appointment already scheduled in the clinic (for a well child visit or other concern), they can obtain the flu vaccine during that visit. A separate appointment does not need to be scheduled.

Flu Vaccine has arrived!

Renton Pediatric Associates strongly recommends the 2020-21 seasonal influenza vaccine for all of our patients ages 6 months and up.  Due to social distancing restrictions, access to appointments will be somewhat limited, but we will be doing our best to get all the children in our practice vaccinated.

We plan on having flu vaccine clinics on Saturdays in October and well as weekdays. These appointments will need to be scheduled in advance (no walk in visits allowed). We will post on the website when we have the dates and times for these clinics finalized, and then you will be able to call to schedule your child an appointment.

If you have a scheduled appointment already (for a well child visit or other concern), your child can get the flu vaccine at that visit rather than schedule a separate appointment. Siblings will be allowed to come into the clinic to receive the flu vaccine if their brother/sister is already being seen in the clinic for a scheduled appointment.

Thank you for your patience and understanding!

FACE MASKS REQUIRED

Please note that parents and patients over the age of 2 are required to wear a face mask in the office. Thank you for your understanding!

Changes to Scheduling Practices

Due to the ongoing novel coronavirus outbreak, scheduling practices at Renton Pediatrics have changed. Our goal is to meet the needs of our patients who need routine well child check-ups and immunizations while also continuing to provide care for children with illness. We are following the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommendations.

All of our providers are now offering telemedicine visits. These are virtual visits using video technology that allow you to see your child’s doctor without leaving your home. Read more
