What you need to know

COVID-19 TESTING (updated September 1, 2021)

CPCMG offers limited in-office specimen collection for COVID-19 testing. If your child is experiencing physical symptoms of COVID-19, please log in to your MyChart account to schedule a Video Visit or contact your CPCMG office to schedule a Video Visit. If your child is experiencing a medical emergency, call 9-1-1.

Due to a high volume of requests and a shortage of supplies for COVID-19 testing, we are not able to test children WITHOUT symptoms who need a COVID-19 test for school, athletics or travel. Please visit one of the following resources for a testing location near you:

211 San Diego
State of CA COVID-19 Testing Sites
San Diego County Testing Sites
Riverside County Public Health Testing Sites
County of Riverside Funded Testing Locations
Rady’s Testing Collaborative

We also recommend contacting your child’s school district for testing information.

Please do NOT go to a Rady Children’s Urgent Care or an Emergency Department if you are seeking testing for a child without symptoms. We regret that we are unable to test adults for COVID-19 at this time.


COVID-19 VACCINES (updated September 21, 2021)

The FDA granted full approval to the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for individuals 16 years and older. The vaccine continues to be available to individuals 12 – 15 years old under emergency use authorization (EUA). For children 5-11 years old, the FDA may issue an EUA as early as late October.  Shortly after emergency authorization, we anticipate being able to offer the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to the 5-11 year age group as well as for teens during in-clinic visits. In the meantime, we encourage all children 12 years and older to get vaccinated now by registering at CA My Turn or scheduling vaccination in San Diego County at this link, in Riverside County at this link, or at a retail pharmacy in either county.



Find answers to your questions about the COVID-19 vaccine here.


The use of face coverings among the general public is still required at health facilities by the State of California regardless of vaccination status. As such, it is our policy that all patients and families must wear cloth or non-medical face coverings (i.e. bandanas, scarves, etc.) in our offices. For children 2 years and younger, alternative coverings such as a blanket over the carrier or stroller are recommended. We respectfully ask that families bring their own face covering for their children and themselves. In some cases, we may provide masks to patients when they come to our offices based on individual needs.

Many mild medical problems can be treated with a CPCMG Video Visit. These visits are available 7 days per week and can be scheduled on MyChart. We encourage you to consider this option. Detailed information is available here.

While providing an enhanced safety experience, we have new visitor guidelines to protect you, your families, other CPCMG families, staff and providers. We appreciate your cooperation during this challenging time.

  • Every individual entering a CPCMG office (2 years of age and older) shall wear a face covering.
  • Absent extenuating circumstances, only two adults (18 and older, parent or caregiver) are allowed to accompany your child to their appointment, although less is preferred for social distancing considerations particularly in waiting rooms.
  • No one under the age of 18 may accompany a patient to any appointment at a CPCMG office unless they also have an appointment.

Unless as noted above, please do not bring other children or family members to the appointment. This includes bringing another adult family member to supervise children (who don’t have an appointment) in CPCMG waiting rooms.


CPCMG está colectando una cantidad limitada de especímenes para las pruebas de COVID-19 en los consultorios. Si su hijo está experimentando síntomas físicos de COVID-19, inicie sesión en su cuenta de MyChart para programar una visita por video o comuníquese con su oficina de CPCMG para programar una visita por video. Si su hijo está experimentando una emergencia médica, llame al 9-1-1.

Debido a un alto volumen de solicitudes y una escasez de suministros de pruebas de COVID-19, no estamos ofreciendo pruebas para niños SIN síntomas o para los que necesitan una prueba de Covid-19 para la escuela, el atletismo o para viajar. Por favor visite uno de los siguientes recursos para obtener un lugar de prueba cerca a usted:

211 San Diego
State of CA COVID-19 Testing Sites
San Diego County Testing Sites
Riverside County Public Health Testing Sites
County of Riverside Funded Testing Locations
Rady’s Testing Collaborative

También recomendamos que contacte el distrito escolar de su hijo/a para obtener información sobre las pruebas de Covid-19.

Por favor no vaya a el Centro de Urgencias de Rady Children’s o a un Departamento de Emergencia si necesita una prueba para un niño/a sin síntomas. Lamentamos no poder ofrecer pruebas de COVID-19 a adultos en este momento.
