There is much in the news about children not being vaccinated and the recent spread of measles in two counties around Portland, OR (see state DPH websites here and here for more information). Since 2016, California law does not allow personal belief exemptions for vaccines; children are required to be fully vaccinated to enter school unless there is a medical reason that the child cannot receive vaccines. As you may already know, East Bay Pediatrics also requires patients to meet a minimum vaccine requirement in order to decrease risk to any of our other patients.
The American Academy of Pediatrics released a revised policy statement this month on the concerning health risks of e-cigarettes like vape pens and their continued spread among adolescents. We know this is a pervasive problem in the East Bay area and discuss it with all of our teenage patients. Read the policy statement and links on that page for more information.
We will have special hours on Martin Luther King Jr Day, January 21. Our Berkeley office will be closed and our Orinda office will have drop in hours from 8:00am to 12:00pm. For more information, please see our calendar.
With mixed emotions, East Bay Pediatrics wants to notify all of our patients and families that Dr. Marcia Charles-Mo will retire as of April 17, 2019. Dr. Charles-Mo has been with the practice for 34 1/2 years and has provided excellent care to our patients. We will relish our last few months working with her. She sent this letter to her patients.
