Immunization Policy

Here at Pediatric Assocaiates, we believe that vaccinations are an essential part of our work protecting children from serious illness, disability and death. We follow the immunization schedule recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and the American Academy of Pediatrics. Thankfully, the vaccinations are very safe, and are associated with only minor side effects, such as fever and tenderness at the injection site. More serious side effects, such as allergy, are exceedingly rare. This risk exists when any medication is given, including over the counter medications. We ask that parents at Pediatric Associates follow the recommended schedule. This is for the sake of their own children, the greater community, and for the babies in our practice who are susceptible to infections because the remain too young to be vaccinated. Having a family immunized patient population is essential to our providing this protection.
