Welcome to Pediatricians of Hyde Park
New RSV immunization
Our physicians briefly want to let you know about a new injection that we may be able to give your child. The medication is called Nirsevimab (brand name Beyfortus). It is a monoclonal antibody for RSV. It is given as a shot and can be given to infants who are currently less than 8 months of age and are entering their first RSV season (typically fall to spring).
RSV is a virus that can cause colds in children and healthy adults but can cause more severe disease in infants, elderly or other immunocompromised individuals. In infants it can cause wheezing and breathing problems and is a leading cause of hospitalizations in this age range.
If you would like to know more about this medication please see here for information from the CDC.
Once you have read the above information, if you are interested you may speak to your child's physician at your next appointment or call the office to let us know that you are interested in an appointment.
As always, the POHP family wishes everyone safe and healthy Fall and Winter seasons!
