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. Because our practice supports you as a parent, we do alter vaccine schedules as requested by parents. We believe the vaccine schedule is safe and effective and the risks of vaccines do not outweigh the benefits. 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 vaccines at your child's next visit.
