- Beginning 9/1/2022, Main Line Fertility will no longer require COVID testing for egg retrieval and embryo transfer procedures for vaccinated patients.
- Main Line Fertility defines a vaccinated patient as having received the first two dose Pfizer, two dose Moderna or one dose J&J COVID vaccine.
- If a patient is undergoing a procedure in our surgi-center and is not vaccinated, COVID testing will still be required- our clinical team will go over these requirements with the patient.
- Vaccinated patients must present their COVID vaccination card in-person to a fertility care coordinator for scanning. We do not accept copies or digital images of COVID vaccination cards.
- The recent CDC guidance on mask wearing for fully vaccinated people DOES NOT apply to healthcare settings. We continue to require our patients, staff and visitors to wear masks while inside our facility.
- Main Line Fertility is allowing 1 support person to accompany the treating patient to their appointment. Our pre-COVID policy that support persons are not allowed in our pre-op or OR areas for egg retrievals or embryo transfers remains the same. Please note, as a courtesy to those struggling with infertility, we do not allow children in our offices.
- For questions regarding the COVID-19 vaccine, The Main Line Fertility Care Team refers patients to Centers for Disease Control. If you have further questions, please speak with your occupational health and/or department supervisor or an infectious disease expert.
- To ensure you are able to start an in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle or a frozen embryo transfer (FET) cycle as soon as you start your menses, please ensure you have completed all pertinent items on the IVF patient checklist.
