Pediatric Associates of Alexandria, Inc.
Pediatric Associates of Alexandria is closely monitoring the rapidly changing status of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Our staff and nurses are trained to answer questions regarding COVID-19 and would be happy to speak to you over the phone. We have taken steps to limit your exposure during visits to our offices.
We will be holding ONLY OUTDOOR flu clinics this year. Our first two will be in the employee parking lot at the Inova Healthplex location on Walker Lane. There will be 4-5 nurses running individual stations spread out in the parking lot each day to be able to accommodate a large number of patients. These are by appointment only, in 5 minute increments. You will be told a station number on the phone when making the appointment. Please go directly to that station.
We will NOT be allowing other children to tag along to in-office appointments to receive flu shots this year. We are still enforcing the "no other children except the patient, and one parent only" rule at both locations, to help with social distancing. We will be holding multiple clinics throughout the season, and people WILL be able to bring multiple children to the outdoor clinics. While we know this is not as convenient, it is to help keep our staff and patients safe.
There will be no in-office flu clinics and no scheduling in-office flu shots. Please call to schedule your child's flu shot.
We have taken steps to decrease your risk of COVID-19 exposure in our offices. Telemedicine visits are being offered for sick visits for our established patients.
We are seeing patients in our offices and are separating sick and well visits between our two offices. Patients who need physicals and/or vaccines will need to be seen in the office.
