COVID, FLU, RSV Vaccines & COVID Testing and Treatment

This season’s Flu vaccine will be offered at RIMG. Unfortunately, we will not be offering the RSV and COVID-19 booster vaccines at RIMG at this time. Please see more information below regarding who is eligible for the RSV and newest COVID-19 booster vaccines and how to obtain them. 

You may receive the COVID and Flu vaccine together, but it is recommended to separate the RSV vaccine by 1-2 weeks. 


Flu Vaccine Clinic: 9/29/23-11/3/23

The single best way to prevent seasonal flu is to get the flu vaccine each year. In addition, you can practice healthy habits by avoiding close contact with people who are sick, staying at home when you are sick, covering your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing and washing your hands often. 

Our Flu Vaccine Clinic schedule is open by appointment only starting Friday, September 29th through November 3rd, 2023

We are offering the Fluzone High Dose Quadrivalent vaccine for 65 and older and the Fluzone Quadrivalent vaccine for under 65. All of our flu vaccines are preservative free and safe for those with an egg allergy.

RSV Vaccine:

Arexvy and Abrysvo were recently approved by the FDA to prevent lower respiratory tract disease caused by RSV in adults ages 60 and older as a single dose. RSV is a common respiratory virus that can lead to severe illness, particularly in infants and older adults. This is an important vaccine as we approach the fall and winter seasons, especially for older adults with heart or lung disease or weakened immune systems. If eligible, please go to your local pharmacy for vaccination


COVID-19 Booster:

Updated COVID-19 vaccines to target current circulating variants and provide better protection against COVID-19, were recently approved by the FDA. The newest COVID-19 vaccines include a monovalent (single) component that corresponds to the Omicron variant XBB.1.5. If you’ve had a recent COVID infection, the CDC states you may wait at least 3 months to receive a COVID booster. All ages are eligible for an updated COVID-19 vaccine, but it is especially important for those over 65 or immunocompromised. You may obtain the newest COVID booster at your local pharmacy


COVID-19 Testing & Treatment

If you are currently ill with COVID, have COVID symptoms please schedule a virtual visit ASAP or do a virtual visit on demand. We have same day COVID PCR testing available for our patients *by appointment only.* If you need a COVID test after exposure or for travel, please call the office and we can help you schedule.

Please see this recently updated link from the CDC on isolation with illness and quarantine after exposure. 

There are treatments authorized for COVID-19 for individuals who are at high risk of progressing to severe COVID-19 as defined by the CDC. An appointment is required for a prescription and our providers are following the CDC guidelines for identifying high risk patients who may benefit from treatment.

During your virtual physical we review lab results, ensure you are up to date on screening procedures, review family history, discuss healthy lifestyle and any symptoms or concerns you may be having.

Practice Statement on the Overturning of Roe v Wade

At Rockville Internal Medicine Group, we prioritize individualized healthcare decisions. As such, we understand that decisions around reproductive choices are nuanced and intensely personal.

The recent ruling from the United States Supreme Court in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization takes the decision of abortion out of the exclusive hands of the doctor-patient relationship. 

We stand with the American Medical Association, the American College of Physicians, the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecologists, and a myriad of other health associations to express our dismay with this decision and offer our support to the millions of American women affected. 

As medical providers, we know that maternal and fetal outcomes, as well as child wellbeing, are directly linked to access to safe and comprehensive reproductive care. We are fortunate to practice in a state where access to safe, elective abortion will likely remain available for all women who wish to make that choice. However, we know the only way to reinstate access for all is for those of us with voices, especially those of us in the medical field, to remain active and engaged in this discussion. 

We wish for all our patients, and all women, to continue to have autonomy and privacy in their medical decisions.
