Vancouver Pediatric and Allergy Centre
Please note that medical masks are still required during your clinic visit.
Our priority is to ensure patient and staff safety by respecting social distancing guidelines. Our physicians are offering telehealth appointments where appropriate. In-person visits are limited to those deemed essential and necessary, and are reviewed by our physicians on a case-by-case basis.

ENHANCED PROTOCOLS TO KEEP YOU SAFE
We ask that all patients and families follow these guidelines during a visit to our office:
Medical grade masks are required - Note that masks have been made mandatory in healthcare settings by the professional colleges and the BCCDC. Young children and infants < 2 years old are an exception.
Hand hygiene is required - We have hand sanitizer available for use before and after your appointment.
COVID-19 screening will be completed prior to any in-person visit. Please do not come to your appointment if you or your child is unwell with COVID-19 symptoms.
Essential items - We're reducing the number of personal items in the clinic (ie. backpacks, purses, books, bags, etc.). If you are arriving by car, please leave your items in your car and bring only essential items (ie. diapers, wipes, infant change of clothes or blanket).
WHAT OUR STAFF ARE DOING
Daily Staff Screening for symptoms of COVID-19.
Enhanced cleaning & infection control protocols - Our staff are cleaning and disinfecting all high-touch surfaces between patient visits. Communal items such as toys and magazines have been put away. We no longer allow patients to wait in the common waiting area.
Social Distancing - We continue to practice distancing within the clinic space
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) - We've implemented sanitization stations and all staff are required to wear a mask while onsite.
We've updated our procedures to match the guidelines from the BC CDC and WorksafeBC.
We are committed to providing safe access to essential medical care and look forward to seeing you!
