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. 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.  Vaccinations prevent potentially fatal diseases before they happen.  As the old saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!

We are happy to discuss your concerns about vaccines at your child's next visit.
