COVID Vaccines Now Available for Patients & Parents


Where can I get the vaccine?
Margiotti & Kroll Pediatrics is dedicated to keeping our patients safe and healthy while also doing our part to end the COVID-19 pandemic.


We are pleased to announce that we now have COVID-19 vaccines available for patients of our practice who are over the age of 18.

Additionally, to keep our younger patients safe we are offering COVID-19 vaccines to parents or caregivers of any patient in our Practice.

Please call the office to request an appointment for parents or patients over 18 years old.


We are hopeful that the FDA will soon approve the Emergency Use Authorization for the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine for children 12 years and older. In anticipation of this approval, we are collecting a list of patients who are interested in receiving the vaccine when it is available.

Please follow the instructions below to create an account to schedule an appointment once the vaccines are available. If you already have an *active* portal account, please await further notification from our office.

COVID-19 Vaccine Information

Our office has been receiving many calls from patients and others in the community to obtain the COVID-19 vaccine. At this time our office does not have any COVID-19 vaccine in stock. We have registered our Practice as a COVID-19 Vaccine Provider with the PA Dept. of Health and received a small supply of vaccines for our staff and other healthcare workers in early January.

We have communicated with the Department of Health our willingness to act as a distribution point for the vaccine moving forward; however, it is unclear when or even if we will receive additional supply due to the overwhelming demand across the state. If you are interested in being added to our waiting list of those eligible to receive the vaccine, please click here and complete the wait list form. We will communicate any future availability to those on that waiting list.

Dr. Halpern Retirement

It is with mixed emotions, but warm wishes, that we announce the retirement of Dr. Janis Halpern from Margiotti & Kroll Pediatrics.  Dr. Halpern has been a valued member of our medical staff since acquiring Langhorne Pediatrics in 2013.  Dr. Halpern has been a practicing pediatrician in the Bucks County area for over 36 years and has cared for thousands of patients along with many second-generation patients.  We are so grateful for her years of dedicated service and wish her a happy and healthy retirement! 

Below is a letter from Dr. Halpern to her patients:

May 6th, 2020

Dear Patient,

Yesterday I made one of the most difficult decisions of my life.  I decided to retire.  If the present circumstances were different, I would have preferred to say goodbye to all of my patients in person.  While I’m fortunate to have remained very healthy throughout these difficult times, I’ve decided to take this opportunity to focus on spending more time with my family.

I am so grateful to each of you for allowing me to take care of your children over the past 36 years.  I  will always cherish the wonderful personal connections that I have made.  I look forward to running into many of you in the community for years to come. 

I know you will continue to receive excellent medical care from my colleagues at Margiotti and Kroll Pediatrics.

Stay safe and stay healthy.

Dr. Halpern
