New Vaccination Requirements for ALL schools in Pennsylvania starting 8/1/17 - Prepare now! Schools previously allowed an 8-month grace period entering certain grades, but this coming school year you'll have ONLY 5 DAYS to get up-to-date or you child will be excluded from school.

If your child is behind, you will be REQUIRED to complete a "medical plan" red and white card provided by the school, approved and signed by your pediatrician, within the first 5 days of school (essentially a vaccine catch-up plan).

See the flyer below and please check your child's/children's portal to see if you are up to date on the required vaccines.

(Still not on the patient portal? Set up your account today to see and print your child's vaccine history, growth charts, lab results, visit summaries, as well as place appointment requests and medication refill requests without having to be on hold on the phone.)

In the news September 2014 "Enterovirus"

Do I have it?  What to Know about Hedline-Grabbing Virus:

Click here for NBC News article

Here is information from Dr. Kostelnik on what you need to know about the Enterovirus:

There are a lot of news stories about the virus infecting children around the country and causing hospitalizations for breathing problems.  What do you need to know?

Enterovirus D68 is a virus relatively similar to another virus called Rhinovirus that causes the common cold. Like other cold viruses, we cannot test for this virus in our office.  Symptoms can start with fever, nasal congestion, nasal discharge, and cough but can become more serious, especially in children with previous asthma or other lung disorders. 

There is no vaccine against or treatment for enterovirus infections, so the disease needs to run its course.  With this virus and any other respiratory infection, anyone who develops serious symptoms like wheezing or difficulty breathing should call our office for further assistance. 

To help protect your kids and yourself from enterovirus, encourage washing hands well and often.

As with all illnesses parents should encourage fluids to keep your kids hydrated.

This infection is not a new or particularly dangerous disease but can cause problems for kids with conditions such as asthma.
