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.

OUR NEW VACCINE POLICY

We believe professionally that to not vaccinate puts children at risk for contacting vaccine- preventable illness and place other vulnerable children in the office at risk as well. These preventable diseases can cause serious illness, brain damage and even death. Vaccines are safe and are clearly safer than no vaccines. As a group practice, we feel we must implement a consistent policy in regards to Parental Refusal of Immunizations. Refusal of vaccines indicates a difference in the philosophy of care to our patients. It is our hope that no patient is discharged from our practice due to vaccine refusal, however for continued refusal, it would be best to terminate our doctor-patient relationship. If we cannot be trusted to provide the best care of your child(ren), then you may not trust or medical recommendations as professionals in other aspects of care.

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