How do you feel about vaccines?
Vaccines have had a tremendous, positive impact on the health of our children and communities. They are also the subject of great controversy and concern. Currently, we recommend giving vaccines to children as long as the benefit greatly outweighs any proven vaccine-related risk.  In alliance with our dedication to “do no harm” to our patients, we keep close tabs on the latest research and recommendations regarding vaccines, and, if we have any concerns, we will communicate them to our parents and amend our recommendations.
It is important to us to work as a collaborator with our patients and families, to listen to them, and respect their decisions. We want our parents to feel empowered and comfortable with the choices they make for their children.  If you choose to follow an alternative schedule for vaccinations or choose not to give vaccinations, we will respect your decision and strive to offer you adequate educational resources to help you make the best decision you can for your children.
