Vaccine Policy

Our practice requires that our patients receive all vaccines as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics due to the public health risk associated with unimmunized and "under-immunized" individuals.  

We do not endorse any "alternate" vaccine schedule.

We have minimum standards for vaccine delivery in our practice. Even in setting these standards, it must be recognized that children that are not immunized according to the schedule endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Advisory Committee of Immunization Practices remain at risk for these diseases and their complications, which include death and significant disabilities.

The following is the Vaccine schedule that our offices follow.
