Immunization Resources

Vaccines are essential in preventing your child from suffering from a deadly disease. With increasing numbers of foreign travel and a decline in vaccination, we are beginning to have outbreaks of diseases that have not been seen in decades. We strongly urge you to get your child vaccinated and to follow the CDC vaccine schedule. In order to protect all of our patients, vaccinations must be initiated on or before 12 months of age.  Please know that in order to alter the vaccine schedule, you will need to sign a waiver.
