SPECIAL NOTICE: Additional Dose of 2023-24 COVID-19 Vaccine Recommended for Persons Aged ≥ 65 Years

US ACIP now recommends that persons aged ≥ 65 years should receive an additional dose of the 2023-24 COVID-19 vaccine (Moderna, Novavax, or Pfizer) at least 4 months after receipt of a previous 2023-24 COVID-19 vaccine dose. The 2023-24 COVID-19 vaccine provides increased protection against symptomatic SARS-CoV-2 infection and COVID-19-associated emergency department/urgent care visits and hospitalization compared to no updated vaccine dose. Early vaccine effectiveness (VE) estimates show no substantial waning; however, waning is expected. An additional dose may restore VE, providing additional protection until the next updated COVID-19 vaccine is available (expected fall 2024).

Foxhall Internists COVID-19 Office Policies & Procedures

At Foxhall Internists we continue to offer video, phone, and email consultations with our patients when appropriate during the coronavirus outbreak. Each of our doctors has their own policy on how they are managing this. If you require assistance with any acute or chronic medical issue, please start by contacting your primary doctor’s assistant, and they will then advise you on what should be done next.We remain open to see patients who need an in-person evaluation and/or lab testing, at the discretion of their doctors. We have taken steps to reduce the chance of COVID-19 transmission in our office, and we have stopped seeing patients with respiratory infection symptoms since about the time the first cases of COVID-19 were confirmed in our area.

We ask that if you have any symptoms which are potentially due to a COVID-19 infection, you inform your doctor’s assistant before you come in.  A complete list of these symptoms is available on the CDC website.

All patients are expected to wear a mask or other protective face covering at all times during their time in the office. In the interest of limiting the number of people in our office, we kindly ask that you do not have anyone accompany you to your appointment, unless their assistance is required.

During the pandemic we also are only offering lab and vaccination services on a scheduled basis, so that we can minimize the number of patients in our waiting areas at any time.  We will continue to be here to help manage your medical care, and we appreciate your support as we try to maintain as safe an office environment as possible.
