Our Vaccine Philosophy
We believe 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.
We are willing to discuss your concerns about vaccines at your child's well visit and will consider alternate vaccine schedules that still meet AAP guidelines. We will not agree to any alternative schedule that puts your child or other patients at increased risk of contracting a vaccine-preventable disease. In addition, we are no longer signing vaccine exemption forms and are not accepting new patients that refuse vaccines.
Our staff is fully vaccinated and we encourage everyone to get vaccinated if eligible, including children age 6 months and up. We will not provide COVID-19 vaccination exemption letters.
