Our Position on Vaccines
It is extremely important that all children receive the recommended vaccines according to the guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). Vaccines are safe and effective in preventing diseases and health complications in both children and 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.
