The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has created a smartphone-based tool called V-safe that uses text messaging and web surveys to report any side effects after getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Signs of a severe allergic reaction include difficulty breathing, swelling of the face and throat, a fast heartbeat, a bad rash all over the body, and dizziness or weakness. Register for automated health check-ins online at https://vsafe.cdc.gov.

You can also report side effects to Pfizer Inc. At www.pfizersafetyreporting.com, or by calling 1-800-438-1985

Cases of myocarditis are rare, and typically occur in male adolescents and young adults after their second dose of mRNA COVID-19 vaccination (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna).

Most patients with myocarditis or pericarditis who received care responded well to medicine and rest and felt better quickly.

Patients can usually return to their normal daily activities after their symptoms improve. Those who have been diagnosed with myocarditis should consult with their cardiologist (heart doctor) about return to exercise or sports. More information will be shared as it becomes available.

You should seek medical attention immediately if your child experiences chest pain, shortness of breath, or feelings or having a fast heartbeat.

Children who have had a severe allergic reaction to ingredients in the vaccine or had a severe reaction after a previous dose should not get their second dose.

The Doctor (older gentleman) there was terrific! I took my son there for a dog bite and he explained everything he was doing to my son and I. He did everything in his power to make my son feel comfortable. His staff was amazing. Everyone was very welcoming and helpful. My son who is 7 kept telling me how grateful he was of them. He kept complimenting them saying that they are so nice, and he’s sad he left. He was terrified of going into the clinic at first, but after being there, he didn’t want to leave. Thank you to the front desk staff, nurses, and Doctor for doing such a good job and making us feel comfortable.
