A Message from Our Providers and Staff of Central Bucks Family Practice
For more information regarding current Covid-19 Vaccine and Booster guidelines,
Central Bucks Family Practice takes great pride in the quality of care we provide our patients. We want to take every precaution possible to ensure their good health throughout the year. As a practice we strongly encourage and enforce patients get vaccinated to best prevent against disease.
The best first step in preventing the COVID-19 is by getting a COVID-19 Vaccine. While getting the shot does not guarantee you will not get the COVID, studies show that those who were vaccinated presented milder symptoms than those who were not. Other steps to prevent against the COVID infection are simpler; like washing your hands, covering your nose and mouth when you sneeze or cough and steering clear of sick individuals when possible.
Did you know that the CDC is recommending that many of those currently vaccinated for COVID-19 should get a booster.
Central Bucks Family Practice has the Bivalent booster in the office for eligible patients
