This page will relay the latest information on Central Coast Peds COVID-19 Protocols and Information. Please check back for updates or follow us on Facebook.
COVID-19 VACCINE & CHILDREN: The COVID-19 vaccine will be available for 12 yrs and up very soon! Alongside the American Academy of Pediatrics and the CDC, the providers at Central Coast Pediatrics ALL recommend that children receive the vaccine when available. The vaccine has shown to be safe and will continue to be intensely monitored more than any other vaccine in history! IF we are able to administer the vaccine at our office, we will, and will keep everyone posted as we gather more information. As of now, there is no timeline in place. PLEASE visit the link below and read the FAQ's from the American Academy of Pediatrics regarding the COVID-19 vaccine and children. Healthychildren.org is such a robust, trusted resource!
Hello CCP Families,
It has been decided that we will remain closed on Saturdays through the end of the year and we will re-evaluate a January start up in December. Thank you for your patience!
Hello Everyone! We're sharing some updates about the office:
1. Effective Monday, 9/21/20, we will resume the “No Show” fee that has been temporarily lifted due to Covid-19. This charge is applied when an appointment is missed and we have not received a phone call 24 hours prior to cancel or reschedule.
2. Effective Monday 9/21/2020, we will plan to resume the normal charge for the completion of forms and for supplying copies of immunization records that are requested outside of an appointment day.
3. In regards to our SATURDAY hours that are currently on hold, we will continue to delay Saturday hours through the month of September. We will reassess the need in October, and plan to let everyone know when we feel it’s the right time to resume.
A quick reminder to our families, please remember that you will need to keep your mask on throughout the entire visit in our office. Thank you for wearing your mask and keeping our community safe!
After careful consideration we have decided that we will be closed on SATURDAYS from now through Labor day weekend. Our weekday hours will remain unchanged M-F 8:30AM-5PM. There will always be a physician on call for urgent calls after hours.
Please remember to mask up when you come see us during the week and stay safe friends!
Dear CCP Families,
Under the direction of our County Health Department, we are required to have all patients and family members wear a mask while in our facilities. Please bring a mask for each family member attending the visit if you have one to preserve our supplies. If you do not have a mask, a fabric or disposable mask will be provided before entering. We ask that you please limit the amount of family members at the visit to 2 people max (1 pt and 2 additional family members). Thank you for your support with this county order and for your help stopping the spread!

- Know that we have taken great lengths to keep our office safe for your family with designated exam rooms for well vs sick patients, having sick patients wait in their cars until their room is ready and cleaned, utilizing masks for respiratory illness and more. Today went very well with our plan in place.
- If you feel your child is ill and would typically have them seen in the office, please call. Typical childhood illnesses are still very much a concern and should not be ignored. ie ear infection, uti, croup, asthma, flu, etc.
Well child checks:
- Some parents have been cancelling/rescheduling check ups. While it may be prudent to delay for children who are older than 2 yrs for the sake of social distancing and flattening the curve, we feel those < 2 deserve a check up. We do not want to put them at risk for other critical childhood illnesses by delaying vaccines, nor miss developmental delays or poor growth.
- We are taking daily cues from SLO Public Health and the CDC, and will be calling families in the event the risk becomes too great.
