We believe that vaccines are one of the most important and successful medical advances of all time. We understand that parents may have questions and concerns about vaccines and their children. Our website provides links to sites that give detailed, scientific information about immunizations. We ask parents to avail themselves of this information, to read and inform themselves. We welcome and encourage questions about vaccine safety and effectiveness. We follow the immunization schedules approved and recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Advisory Committee on Immunizations Practices of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
For information about these vaccines and the diseases they protect against, please visit the CDC website.
