Our Vaccine Philosophy

Our practice believes that all children should receive the recommended vaccines according to the guidelines and schedules provided by the AAP and CDC. To see the guidelines or view more information on this, check out the AAP and the CDC website. 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. We are happy to discuss your concerns about vaccinations at your child’s next visit.
