Immunizations

Following the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics, we encourage all children to be vaccinated according to the current schedule.

Due to unfounded fear, some parents refuse to vaccinate their children. We will discuss the risks of refusing immunizations at every office visit. Because of the success of vaccines, many parents are not aware or may have no memory of the seriousness of the diseases that vaccines prevent.  We will ask you to sign the Refusal to Vaccinate form from the AAP.  Unimmunized children are a terrible health risk to other children; therfore, we may ask you to find another clinic.

Information regarding childhood immunization can be found at the American Academy of Pediatrics’ Childhood Immunization Support Program (CISP)  www.cispimmunize.org
