Safe. Ready. Open.
UVA Children’s pediatric care clinics are once again welcoming new and existing patients for on-site appointments, offering a variety of services ranging from well-child visits to more immediate or specialized care. Your patients and families can rest assured that every UVA team member is taking necessary safety precautions and adhering to all government guidelines for infection control. Now is the time to schedule back-to-school immunizations, specialty care that may have been postponed during quarantine or any delayed procedures.
All of our clinics are now open for in-person care; however, virtual clinic visits are still available for those families who feel more comfortable receiving care at home.
