COVID-19 VACCINE AND PAIN MANAGEMENT INJECTIONS

Mayfair • Feb 25, 2021

If you are scheduled for a COVID-19 vaccine, please DO NOT delay it due to a pain management injection. Getting the COVID-19 vaccine should take priority over a pain management injection. However, based upon guidance for cortisone injections and the COVID-19 vaccine and the potential suppression of the immune system following steroid use, Mayfair requires that patients who have a scheduled date for their COVID-19 vaccination book their pain management injections either two weeks before or one week after any COVID-19 vaccination.

Please contact us at 1-866-611-2665 if you have a confirmed date for your COVID-19 vaccine and are scheduled for one of the following pain management treatments:

  • Cervical Epidural (Trans-facet) Injection
  • Cervical Facet Injection
  • Cortisone (Steroid) Injection
  • Epidural Spine Injection
  • Nstride Autologous Protein Solution Therapy
  • Platelet-Rich Plasma Injection
  • Selective Nerve Root Block
  • Tendon Calcification Therapy
  • Tenotomy or Fasciotomy (Fenestration) Therapy
  • Viscosupplement (Hyaluronic Acid) Injection – Cingal injections only

The safety of our patients is very important to us and we believe that receiving the COVID-19 vaccine should take priority over pain management treatment. Our recommendation to delay pain management is based on currently available data and recommendations. Once you have re-booked your appointment, you will need to ensure you follow Mayfair Diagnostics’ health and safety precautions when you attend your appointment.

OTHER SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

We ask that if you are experiencing flu-like symptoms or are at risk of exposure to COVID-19, please schedule your appointment for when you have recovered or have confirmed that you don’t have COVID-19.

While it’s no longer mandatory, we do strongly recommend the wearing of masks at all Mayfair Diagnostics clinics, especially for symptomatic patients. We will continue to have level 3 surgical masks available to patients upon request.

Mayfair Diagnostics employees will continue to wear masks in patient-facing areas, as well as maintaining our sanitization protocols. Waiting room patient physical distancing has also been reduced to 0.5-1 metre, as chair or bench seating configuration permits. However, we do recommend you come alone to your appointment, unless you require assistance.
