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 have been scientifically tested to be 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. There is no such thing as an approved "alternative" vaccine schedule.
We are happy to discuss your concerns about vaccines at your child's next visit.
