LA County has opened up the scheduling for the Covid Vaccines on their website for Phase 1a and part of 1b (65 and up) as of January 21. To check the status go to the LA County Public Health Website (http://publichealth.lacounty.gov/acd/ncorona2019/covidvaccinedistribution/).
A severe allergic reaction to any vaccine or injectable therapy (intramuscular, intravenous, or subcutaneous) is a precaution to vaccination at this time – Vaccine providers should observe patients after vaccination to monitor for the occurrence of immediate adverse reactions:
- Persons with a history of anaphylaxis: 30 minutes
- All other persons: 15 minutes
We have signed up to provide the Covid Vaccine however we do not know when we will receive a supply.
We would like to share with you the measures we are taking to protect our patients and our staff from the effects of COVID-19.
- Patient temperatures are being checked at the door before patients are admitted into the office.
- In-office Procedures such as allergy testing and breathing tests may be scheduled after they have been ordered by Dr.Geller, Dr. Chan, or Dora Afrahim, our PA.
- Re-Evaluations and New Patient appointments can be done via Telehealth* or in office.
- Allergy shots are being administered by appointment only. We are open Monday through Friday 7:30- 4:30. Please call to schedule.
- Rooms are sanitized after every patient and our staff are vigilant about handwashing and cleaning common areas.
- We have placed HEPA filters throughout the office.
- Due to COVID-19, We will not be administering shots on a walk-in basis until further notice.
We ask that you help us by:
- Wearing a mask or face covering.
- *Do not bring anyone with you to your appointment* unless a caretaker is necessary. For children, only one parent should accompany minors to their appointments.
- Arrive exactly on time for your appointment. If you are early, please wait in your car until your appointment time or call us to see if we can accommodate you. If you are late, please call do not just arrive late, as you may be turned away.
- Be vigilant about your own hygiene such as washing your hands and not touching your face.
- Pay your statement online through the patient portal or call us to make a phone payment.
- If you are sick or experiencing fever, shortness of breath, dry cough, nausea, chills, headache, or loss of sense of smell or taste, please reschedule for a later date when you have been feeling better for at least 2 weeks or change your appointment to Telehealth if feasible.
