Vaccines are one of the most important and successful medical advances of all time. Regular immunizations are one of the safest and most effective methods of preventing diseases and health complications in children and young adults.
Our practice believes that all children should receive the recommended vaccines according to the guidelines provided by the AAP and the CDC. We welcome and encourage questions and concerns that parents may have about vaccines and their children.
