Our Vaccine Philosophy
Our practice believes that all children should receive the recommended vaccines according to the guidelines provided by the AAP and the CDC. Vaccines are safe and effective in preventing diseases and health complications in children and young adults. Regular vaccinations help children ward off infections, and are administered as one of the safest and best methods of disease prevention.
If the patient does not follow these guidelines, we will ask them to look for another medical provider. The only allowable exceptions would include documented allergies to the vaccine or its components.
We are happy to discuss your concerns about vaccines at your child's next visit.
