Congratulations Dr. Witt!
Pivotal Kids Clinic would like to wish a hearty congratulations to Dr. Witt, who is expecting a baby in February 2023! Dr. Witt will be going on a short maternity leave from February 1st, 2023 to May 31st, 2023. She will return on June 1st, 2023. While she is away, her patients will be followed by Dr. Cellupica, and by a visiting doctor, Dr. Wang. Pivotal Kids Clinic will do its best to book your child’s appointments based on the availability of Dr. Cellupica and Dr. Wang, but please note that some appointments that are not urgent in nature (e.g. annual physicals not requiring vaccination) may be postponed until Dr. Witt’s return. If there are any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the office and we will do our best to assist you.

***BY APPOINTMENT ONLY***
COVID-19 Vaccination for Children Aged 5-11 Years
With the recent announcement of Health Canada approving the COVID vaccine for children aged 5-11 years, our office has received many calls from parents who wish to discuss this vaccine with Dr. Witt or Dr. Cellupica. While we appreciate people wishing to speak to their physicians directly, we are finding it difficult to schedule these appointments with the return to more in person visits, check-ups, and urgent calls about illness.
Both Dr. Witt and Dr. Cellupica support the Health Canada recommendation that children aged 5-11 years receive the COVID-19 vaccination. This decision is based on expert opinion, and is especially important as children in this age group have become the fastest growing population of people who are getting infected with COVID. While most children will experience a mild case, there are concerns that children can develop MIS-C which is a severe multisystem inflammatory condition, as well as the risk of developing more severe COVID or suffering long standing symptoms after infection. As well, it is important to have as many people vaccinated in our community so that we can limit the spread of this deadly virus and hopefully prevent any further lockdowns and the negative effect they have on children’s mental health and development.
If you wish more information specific to the COVID vaccine in children, or if you wish to have a consultation regarding the vaccine, please visit https://www.sickkids.ca/vaccineconsult where you can speak to someone by telephone appointment. Additional resources can be found at york.ca/COVID19VaccineInfo.
