Vaccines For Children
Questions about Vaccines For Children?
Our practice believes that all children should receive the recommended vaccines according to the guidelines provided by the AAP and the CDC. 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.
Our practice does understand that parents may be concerned about the number of vaccinations given per visit. We do believe that it is safe to give all vaccines that are due at the scheduled well visits. However, our practice does offer a "modified" vaccination schedule for parents that desire a slower vaccination schedule. We are happy to discuss this option with you at your child's next visit.
